Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) will have an impact on any business. All companies will, at some point in their lifetime, produce WEEE and with that have a need to dispose of it.
So what is it exactly?
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) is
the European Community directive 2002/96/EC on waste electrical and
electronic equipment which, together with the RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC,
became European Law in February 2003, setting collection, recycling and
recovery targets for all types of electrical goods.
The directive imposes the responsibility for the disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) on the manufacturers of such equipment. Those companies should establish an infrastructure for collecting WEEE, in such a way that "Users of electrical and electronic equipment from private households should have the possibility of returning WEEE at least free of charge". Also, the companies are compelled to use the collected waste in an ecological-friendly manner, either by ecological disposal or by reuse/refurbishment of the collected WEEE.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?It's now a criminal offence to dispose of WEEE using regular waste options Any redundant computer or CRT monitor must be handed over to a waste producer or waste management centre.
