The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations are now UK law. All European member states have agreed to proposals to reduce the amount of WEEE deposited in landfill sites. All manufacturers, retailers and distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment need to take an active role in reducing the levels of WEEE disposed of in landfill sites.
WEEE reduction in landfill sites is important as it can contain hazardous substances which can contaminate water supplies and pollute soil, which may then result in damage to human health and the environment.
Some WEEE can also be recycled. The amount of available landfill space is decreasing throughout Europe and in the UK, so by keeping recyclable, or re-usable WEEE out of landfill sites it means there is more landfill space available for non-recyclable waste.
