What does WEEE and EEE mean?
WEEE is a term for waste electronics and covers more than computer recycling.
Simply put this means “Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment” & “Electrical and Electronic Equipment”
What is the WEEE Directive?
The WEEE Directive is European environmental legislation aimed at preventing said electrical & related material from going to landfill.
Navigating through the pages of legislation governing redundant electrical equipment can sometimes be a bit disconcerting so we’ve attempted to simplify the process.
Even if a small part of an item is electronic, for example a large toy with a battery controlled sound, still counts as WEEE.
There are sub categories within the framework to break it down into different types. One of the important distinctions is whether the it is hazardous or not. CRT monitors and other WEEE containing harmful substances are classed as hazardous.
