Since the introduction of the WEEE directive we have proactively engaged with the retail sector and the public through information campaigns, Open Days for public to bring and collect of electrical appliances.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is a type of waste covering any broken or unwanted electrical or electronic device. It includes a wide range of products from computers, printers and faxes, to washing machines and fridges.
The 10 categories of WEEE are:
Electrical and Electronic waste (WEEE) is the fastest growing form of waste in the EU today. It produced approximately 9 million tonnes in 2005 and this figure is expected to rise to 12.3 million tonnes by 2020. Ireland has embraced the Directive so much so that in 2008 we collected over 9.5kg of electrical waste per person – more than double the EU target of 4kg per person!
Ratcliffe continues to invest in its fleet and collection equipment stock to cater for the growth in WEEE collection and recycling and work with industry and householders to continue the reduction of waste to landfill. If you have any queries in relation to WEEE or would be interested in talking to us on how we can help your business please contact Trevor or Tanya Ratcliffe.
