WEEE recycling

Computer equipment at the end of its useful life?                                                                                                                                 Clearing out old household appliances?                                                                                                                                               WEEE recycling is essential - and it’s the law!

What is WEEE recycling?

WEEE stands for Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment.

WEEE waste is defined as any type of electrical and electronic equipment which has:

A power plug for connecting to an electrical mains socket or relies on internal batteries to operate.

Any WEEE items can be classified as waste electrical and electronic equipment, or e waste, if they:

Develop a fault which is beyond economic repair or reach the end of their useful life

WEEE Waste Facts

Each year in the UK:

1.45 million tonnes -  e waste produced by household and business waste electronic equipment.

500,000 tonnes - electronic waste thrown away, stolen or hoarded.

155,000 tonnes – electrical waste equipment placed in domestic bins, incinerated or sent to landfills.

145,000 tonnes - commercial electrical waste placed in skips with no evidence of recycling.

“Electrical Waste – challenges and opportunities” - Material Focus, 2020.


What WEEE Items should be recycled?

Under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive, 2003, WEEE disposal and recycling of electrical waste must be legally carried out in a way that does not harm the environment.

Most household appliances are classed as WEEE waste, including toys, leisure and sports equipment, and consumer electrical equipment technology, including:


Large household appliances

Cookers, Microwaves, Washing machines, Dishwashers

Small household appliances

Vacuum cleaners, Irons, Toasters, Clocks, Kettles, Sewing machines

IT and telecommunications equipment

Computers, Laptops, Tablets, Mobiles, Landlines, Pocket calculators

Consumer equipment

Radios, Musical instruments, Cameras

Display equipment

TVs and monitors

Toys, leisure and sports equipment

Games consoles, Treadmills


Electrical tools

Lighting equipment

Cables and connectors

Discharge lamps

Medical equipment


Monitoring/control equipment

Thermostats, Smoke detectors

PV solar panels


Business waste electrical and electronic equipment

Business electrical and electronic equipment can often be periodically replaced with upgrades, system expansion or just prior to relocating to new premises, including:

Telecommunications Equipment:

Landlines

Cordless phones

Conference phones

Mobile phones

IT Equipment:

Computers

Laptops and Tablets

Monitors

Routers

Keyboards and Mice

Printers

Copying Equipment

Fluorescent tubes

Automatic Dispensers


Parts of WEEE electronic equipment that can be recycled

Many of today’s electronic devices, particularly IT and communication equipment contain:

Printed Circuit Boards  and Memory chips – containing the three key precious metals of gold, silver and palladium, as well as other rare metals crucial in recycling waste electrical and electronic equipment.

Other key WEEE items include:

Batteries – made from Lithium Ion with it core elements of cobalt,  lithium, stainless steel, copper, aluminium and plastic.

Bezels – any metal, plastic or other materials covering the exterior, but not the glass screen.

Under WEEE regulations, all businesses must manage, control and monitor the collection, treatment and documentation of all their electrical and electronic waste.  


What affect does electronic waste have on the environment?

All electrical and electronic waste contains several toxic and allergenic metals as well as chemicals that cause long term damage to the environment.

Hazardous components in e waste include circuit boards, mercury-containing equipment, batteries, liquid crystal display (LCD) screens and light-emitting diodes (LEDs).

Among the toxic metals used in electronic equipment are arsenic, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, lead, mercury, and nickel, which can be released during recycling.

WEEE waste equipment sent to landfill degrades over time. Harmful toxins eventually leak into the earth and water systems, which can enter the food chain.

The UK generates 23.9kg of e-Waste per capita, the second highest WEEE waste in the world (behind Norway), according to the Global e-Waste Monitor. Globally, the amount of waste WEEE produced is rising three times faster than the world’s population.


Domestic WEEE and consumer equipment classed as Hazardous Waste

Updated guidance by the Environment Agency (EA) in 2020 states that most types of domestic WEEE waste and consumer equipment in the UK must now be classed as hazardous waste.

Many forms of WEEE contain Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), which pose long term risks to the environment and human health, including:

Printed circuit boards

Plastic casings

Cables and related components

Insulation foams

Cooling agents

Flame retardants

Activated glass and screen phosphors

Capacitors

Ni-Cd batteries

Following the waste management guidance for correct WEEE disposal of electrical items will significantly help reduce the amount of electrical waste sent to landfill every year and minimise environmental impact.


What is the best way to dispose of old electronics?

Old electronic devices and gadgets should never be never placed in a wheelie bin, which could be sent to a landfill. WEEE recycling is a specialist part of the waste management and hazardous waste collection procedure.

Under WEEE regulations, all retailers must provide a way for customers to dispose of their old household electrical and electronic equipment when a new version of the same item is purchased.

This may take the form of a collection service or store old electronics returns scheme, which may apply charges for the collection service.

Some councils may offer a household recycling collection service for small electrical items. It is essential to always ensure that the disposal of electrical waste and electronic equipment is recycled responsibly. Correct WEEE recycling of old household electronic equipment typically includes televisions, laptops, tablets and mobile phones.


Recycling large electronics

Disposal of a number of different waste electrical and electronic items all at once requires a dedicated WEEE recycling company service, fully expert and experienced in handling WEEE waste items.
