Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) can include toxic and hazardous materials including lead, cadmium, beryllium and chromium which can reach soil if not recycled and left to landfill. So there is a huge responsibility on companies to ensure they are recycling where possible.

There is also a risk of electrical safety and fire and explosion risks if some electronic waste is not stored properly. There are many regulations in place that must be adhered to legally but recycling WEEE can be done easily and safely if certain instructions are followed carefully. Let our expertise help guide your business to a safe and effective way of recycling electrical waste safely.

Recycling recovers valuable material that can be used to make new products. There is huge growth in the electronics market in particular and by recycling WEEE products, large revenues can be made. The demand for affordable, high-quality electronics is driving further developments and advancements in the materials and chemicals sectors. New opportunities for electronics and related industries are then created, as these products reach new customers in emerging markets. These advances help improve the longevity of products and decrease the environmental impact of new devices.
