The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, was first introduced in 2007 and governs how manufacturers and retailers in European countries behave in regards to recycling.
The WEEE directive is regularly-updated and designed to ensure that less harmful electrical waste is sent to landfill; although the regulations don’t directly affect consumers, they do ultimately make it simpler for you to recycle your old electrical goods.
Although it is still possible to dispose of a small amount of hazardous waste (excluding asbestos) through the normal waste collection system, larger quantities must be disposed of in specially managed waste facilities. Please note that asbestos waste always requires special collection and should not be placed in the bin. Your local authority would be able to provide more information on this.
Stricter measures apply to businesses and other institutions that produce or generate hazardous waste. For more information on this subject please follow the Gov.uk related links for full regulations.
