The Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment Directive bans the use of certain hazardous components in newly manufactured goods in this category. More importantly from a waste disposal perspective it requires that ALL waste goods of this type are recycled as is now the case for refrigeration equipment. This will have a major impact on businesses replacing IT equipment for example as it will no longer be able to go into your general waste container. The latest implementation date is June 2006. If you are interested in finding out about the options available please contact the recycling team.
