Used computers, monitors and other electronic equipment that are disposed of improperly have the potential to contaminate our environment and prematurely fill our existing landfills.
To address these problems two pieces of legislation have been put in place: The Directive on waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE Directive) and the Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS Directive)
The first WEEE Directive entered into force in February 2003. The Directive provided for the creation of collection schemes where consumers return their WEEE free of charge. These schemes aim to increase the recycling of WEEE and/or re-use. However, in line with the increase in consumer spend of electronics the Directive was revised in December 2008. The new WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU entered into force on 13 August 2012 and became effective on 14 February 2014.
Companies that don't comply with UK and EU regulations can face thousands of pounds in fines and clean-up costs as a result.
