WEEE Regulations cover all household and office electrical equipment.

It's important that electrical waste is recycled correctly to avoid any damage to the environment.

New stricter WEEE regulations were implemented in 2014

Compliance is mandatory.  Our trucks are in London 7 days a week. CALL US NOW!

WEEE recycling regulations apply to all electrical epuipment used in household, private, commercial premises and offices.


Every year, people dump roughly 50 million tonnes of harmful and toxic electronic waste into the environment. In the EU, the target is to collect 65 tonnes of e-waste by 2019. The new law, enforced in 2014, supersedes the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive of 2003.

When implemented, it obliges sellers to take in electronic devices sold even when there is no purchase or replacement for recycling. The collection of large appliances is the responsibility of the manufacturer. In addition, exporters of electronic goods are also required to include documentation of recycling, repair, and re-use to prevent exports of e-waste to poor countries.

Hence, saying yes to recycling and reusing electronic goods can go a long way in ensuring that the pressures on the fragile environment and ecosystem are drastically reduced.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE): implementing the recast Directive and UK system changes

The revised WEEE Regulations came into force from 1 January 2014.

Proposal: Financing: WEEE from private households

8.(1) In each compliance period, the financing of the costs of the collection, treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal of WEEE from private households that

(a)is deposited at a designated collection facility; or (b)is returned under regulation 32 but is not deposited at a designated collection facility,
during that compliance period (the relevant WEEE) shall be the responsibility of all producers who put EEE on the market in the United Kingdom in that compliance period.

(2) Each producer to whom paragraph (1) applies shall be responsible for financing the costs of the collection, treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal of an amount of the relevant WEEE.

Just a sample from the new proposals...

        We offer complete electrical waste clearance services taking away and recycling all electrical appliances, refrigerators, dryers, cookers etc, as above.

        A FREE check on your current waste collection requirements can provide your company with a cost saving waste disposal system.  And of course we are very often able to provide 'same day' collections, as our trucks are generally in and around London most days of the week.

        We also operate a very popular 'one-off' service - 'Load and Go' collections in London where helpful drivers and crew load a client's rubbish into our truck while you wait.  This is a very popular service in the city of London where parking restrictions are in force most days and skip hire is expensive because you require a permit.


        We are currently recycling all rubbish and waste.  Over 75% of all the waste we collect is currently being recycled. (Electrical waste over 90%)

        All waste materials, whether they are solid, liquid, gaseous or radioactive fall within the remit of waste management.

        Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products. 


        Metal recycling is very important as it takes less energy(heat) to produce new metal than smelting techniques.

        We collect and buy scrap metal.

        It is not always possible to give precise prices without discussing a client's needs.  Prices will vary according to the type of ferrous waste, size of load and the value of the waste to be collected.  However, please call us and we will endeavor to give a close estimate of the charges that will be incurred and we promise that the best possible prices will be applied.

        If you require regular waste collections we can negotiate a cost saving scheme at a reduced tariff.
