    What Does WEEE Recycling Mean?

    Want to know more about WEEE waste recycling? The search stops here. Here are some of your burning questions answered.

    What Is WEEE Waste Recycling?

    WEEE standards for 'Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment'. The WEEE Directive was introduced with the aim to reduce the volume of e-waste ending up in landfill sites or disposed of in ways which harm the environment (e.g. incineration). The guidance often focuses on how electronic equipment is manufactured, but we all need to think carefully about how we dispose of this type of waste.

    What Is WEEE Waste?

    As WEEE refers to electrical and electronic equipment, it can encompass a lot of different items with a plug or battery, including small household appliances and large household appliances. As well as electrical appliances, most IT equipment comes under the WEEE umbrella. This means businesses looking to dispose of their used and redundant computers and hard drives will need to think carefully about how to manage assets in the most secure and eco-friendly manner.

    Is WEEE Hazardous Waste?

    While hazardous waste often refers to toxic chemicals or materials such as asbestos, WEEE waste could still negatively affect the environment. This includes harmful gases emitted during processes such as incineration and pollutants released if the equipment was dumped in landfill.

    Why Is Recycling Waste Important?

    You'll often hear about all the million tonnes of rubbish sent to landfill in general waste bins every year in the UK. We all have a responsibility towards the environment, whether you're an individual at home or a large-scale organisation. As a business, you may even have targets to reduce your carbon footprint. We need to find new ways to recycle all our waste wherever possible, including WEEE items.

    What Is WEEE Recycling?

    IT equipment and electronics have a high turnover rate in the UK with endless new software, computers, mobile phones and technology released each week. This creates more hazardous waste entering our environment and polluting the ground and air around us. But there are better solutions.

    WEEE computer recycling looks to dispose of end-of-life products using the best procedures, resulting in fewer harmful chemicals entering the atmosphere and more recycling of raw materials found in anything from lighting equipment and medical devices to electrical and electronic tools.

    When developing your business waste disposal or data privacy policy, make sure you carefully consider all IT recycling options.

    What Is the Best Way to Dispose of Old Electronics in the UK?

    If you're looking for the best IT waste recycling solutions, always use an accredited and experienced company. At Gigacycle, we offer a wide range of IT waste management solutions, working closely with individuals, small and large businesses, and public sector organisations. We offer both data destruction and computer recycling services across the UK, finding eco-friendly ways to dispose of and reuse electrical equipment. Get in touch for all enquiries about our equipment WEEE services.

    What Are the Alternatives to Electrical Equipment Recycling?

    Waste electrical and IT equipment are made up of raw materials such as metals, plastics, glass and circuit boards, so people often think recycling is the best option. However, did you know that using these materials to manufacture new products will still release energy? If you're looking for the most environmentally-friendly IT waste disposal solutions, there are other options available than your average recycling service. This includes:

    • IT refurbishments - Repair equipment so that it can be reused in your business.
    • Reuse - Working parts can be used within other equipment to help restore the asset to a good working condition.
    • Computer updates - Wipe confidential information from devices (e.g. via erasure services) and update assets with custom software to reinstall them within your company.
    • Donate - Once they've been through a data destruction process, old computers could be donated to others in need.
    • Sell - Restored electrical waste could be sold at a reasonable price.
