Over recent years numerous regulations and directives have been enforced by our government and the European Union. Their aim is to protect the environment and make it a safer place for all. These regulations and directives include;
- Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005
- The European Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive
- Battery Directive
- Environmental Protection Act 1990
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is a European law designed to encourage and regulate the collection, reuse, recycling and recovery of waste electrical and electronic equipment.
The WEEE regulations came into force on 1st July 2007, this ensured all organisations electronic equipment would have to recycled responsibly. The directive ensured waste that contained harmful chemicals would not come into contact the environment causing damage.
All of the above regulations have a direct impact on the way your company may dispose of used electronic equipment. This in turn directly affects your corporate responsibility and activities.

Why we are not a AATE
We are not a AATF, however we are allowed to provide all the service an AAT can, not being an AATF only limits us in 2 areas, firstly we have a reduced amount of WEEE tonnage that we are legally allowed to process each year, as do not recycle large items such as fridges, freezers, washing machine etc this does not affect us. Finally we are not allowed to sell our compliance paperwork to compliance schemes,
