WEEE Information

 

What is the WEEE Directive?

The WEEE Directive (Waste Electrical and Electronic Directive) aims to reduce the waste arising from electrical and electronic equipment; and improve the environmental performance of all those involved in the life cycle of electrical and electronic equipment.

What does WEEE mean for Private Households?

Private householders will be able to return their WEEE to collection facilities free of charge. Producers will be responsible for financing the collection, treatment, recovery and disposal of WEEE from private households deposited at these collection facilities.
