What you need to do

If WEEE regulations apply to your organisation, you are required to act either through registration and reporting or financing waste collection. It can seem a little daunting, but this is where we come in. Working together we can take care of all this for you, saving time, money and energy.
  • Join a WEEE compliance scheme within 28 days of when you first placed electrical items on to the market
  • Report on the weight of EEE that you’ve placed onto the UK market
  • Ensure the reports categorise your EEE correctly
  • Ensure your data is as accurate as reasonably possible
  • Finance a proportion of the costs for the collection, treatment and recovery of the EEE you have placed on the market, if it exceeds the five tonne threshold
  • If you are a distributor of electrical items, you also have to provide information and like-for-like WEEE take-back

Importantly, we can help you. Ignorance of the regulations is not accepted as a defence and previous years’ non-compliance can be counted in enforcement actions. Don’t worry as no matter how large the undertaking, we can assist and guide you every step of the way to ensure your organisation is no longer in breach of the regulations.
