Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

WEEE is anything that uses a plug, batteries or charger, such as photocopiers, printers, phones, faxes, computers, lamps, cameras, TVs etc.

WEEE regulations were introduced in January 2007. They state that waste electrical equipment must be stored, collected, treated and recycled separately from other waste. If you have any waste electrical equipment you need to dispose of it must be treated and disposed of in an environmentally sound way. You must request and retain proof that it has been given to a registered waste company for this purpose.

If you have any waste electrical or electronic equipment to RECYCLE you can book a collection with:

123 Recycle for Free

There is a £95 (+VAT) administration fee for all collections. There is a minimum collection of 4 items; however there is no maximum limit.

Note: All collected material will be processed by an approved authorised treatment facility

Computer Aid International

Computer Aid International is an ICT for development charity that professionally refurbishes tablets, phones, computers and networking equipment donated by companies, institutions, schools and individuals, and distributes them to developing countries where they are needed the most. Their mission is to reduce poverty through practical ICT solutions, aiming to help resource-poor communities to access digital information and build skills that will improve their lives.

They are fully compliant with the Data Protection Act and guarantee the unrecoverable removal of 100% data and that all electronic waste is recycled to the highest European and UK Environmental Agency standards. 0% of all electronic waste goes to landfill. Any equipment unable to be re-used is sent to a licensed waste management disposal company.

Collections and disposal options
Donations are accepted to their north London offices between Monday to Friday 10am and 4pm. Collections can be arranged free of charge.

Printer cartridge disposal
Most suppliers of printer cartridges will recycle your old used cartridges. If they do not do this you can have them collected and recycled by Computer Aid International. They will collect original branded cartridges such as HP, Lexmark and Samsung etc. They are unable to recycle compatible/remanufactured or photocopier cartridges. (minimum collection, 15 cartridges).

School visits
A visit to your school can be arranged to talk about the importance of reusing versus recycling and the impact it has on the environment, as well as how technology is helping communities all around the world.
