Focus on recycling WEEE

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is a diverse and intricate category of recyclable waste that poses unique challenges in the recycling process.

This category of waste consists of various electronic devices, making it a challenging waste type to handle. Our primary goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for the waste we receive, and the way we handle and store electrical items plays a significant role in determining its recycling value.

At our facility, we prioritize obtaining the optimal outcome for the WEEE we receive, and this heavily relies on how we handle and store this waste stream. Preserving the structural integrity of WEEE is crucial, as it directly impacts its reusability.

When WEEE is kept in a structurally intact state, it becomes more viable for recycling. However, once it becomes wet or contaminated, the potential recycling options diminish significantly, leading to a substantial decrease in its resale value.

Our commitment to recycling is evident in our comprehensive approach to handling this complex waste type.
