EC WEEE Directive

The Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive aims to minimise the impact of electrical and electronic goods on the environment.

This is done by increasing re-use and recycling, and reducing the amount of WEEE sent to landfill.

All businesses that use electrical and electronic equipment must comply with the WEEE Regulations.

This means that you must store, collect, treat, recycle and dispose of WEEE separately from your other waste.

You must also obtain and keep proof that your WEEE was given to a waste management company. This must show that it was treated and disposed in a way that doesn’t harm the environment.

Contact us today to discuss how we can help you meet the WEEE Directive.

Data Protection Act 1998

The Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) governs the use of personal information of living people.

It aims to promote high standards in handling this information to protect a person’s right to privacy. Failure to do so can result in criminal prosecution.

We can help you comply with the Act by supplying secure storage and destroying sensitive audit trails.

Environment Protection Act 1990

A key area of this law is the Care of Duty obligation for waste producers. This covers everything from using the right containers, through to final disposal.

It is surprisingly easy to fall foul of this law. Our team of experts can answer any questions you may have and advise you on a suitable solution.
