WEEE Regulations. What is WEEE? WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. WEEE is one of the fastest growing waste streams in Europe. WEEE may contain hazardous substances which, if exposed, could have a serious detrimental effect on the environment and human health. To help customers identify Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment, a crossed out wheelie bin logo will be displayed on the product. These products should not be disposed of with household waste or sent to landfill sites.
What are the WEEE Regulations? From July 2007 all manufacturers (or anyone else selling a product on the market in the EU) are liable to pay for take-back, treatment and recycling of end-of-life electrical equipment. This is to reduce the number of such items being sent to landfill sites.
