KEEPING COMPLIANCE SIMPLE

Recycling of WEEE is a specialised part of the waste and recycling industry. It is a rapidly growing sub-sector due largely to the implementation of the original WEEE directive in the UK by the EU in 2006, with that came the associated requirements for the recovery, reuse, recycling and treatment of WEEE. 

A key objective of the WEEE regulations is to eliminate WEEE going to landfill.  This is achieved by placing an extended responsibility on producers and distributors of electric and electronic equipment. 

Manufacturers and consumers of electronic goods (EEE) must ensure that all WEEE is treated and recycled by a licensed facility. 

Only operators of approved ATFs (AATFs) can issue evidence notes for the treatment, recovery or recycling of WEEE that takes place in the UK. The evidence we provide on your behalf will relate to treatment, recovery and recycling being carried out on our approved site.

The government have the power to fine companies and / or individuals thousands of pounds if legislation is not adhered to. 

For this reason, DCS is dedicated in supporting our customers not only with their recycling but also their audit-able paper trail too.
