Electrical Recycling for Waste Reduction Week

Electrical and Electronic Equipment Recycling

Under the EU WEEE directive, Recycle IT are proud to recycle any old appliances or batteries free of charge. Recycle IT will dispose of anything with a plug or battery that can be found in an average household or small office in a safe and correct manner reducing any harmful effects to the environment. 

Waste electrical and electronic equipment is one of the fastest-growing waste streams in the developed world.  Until recently, a lot of WEEE would have been thrown into the bin and disposed of in landfills.  Improved regulation of the collection, recycling and disposal of WEEE has been made law at the European level (WEEE Directive) and brought into Irish law (WEEE Regulations) since 2005.  

New Irish WEEE regulations were published in March 2014, to implement changes that were introduced in Europe in the second WEEE Directive.

Two compliance schemes have been approved by the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government to manage the collection, recovery and recycling of WEEE in Ireland Both schemes report annually and demonstrate achievement of the EU targets for collection and recovery of WEEE.

A system of free “take back” of WEEE from the household waste stream was established with one-off collection events, drop off points at retail outlets and civic amenity sites.
