The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations came into force in January 2007 with an aim to reduce the amount of this waste going to landfill and improve recovery and recycling rates. Since then electrical and electronic waste has become the fastest growing waste stream in the UK with around 1 million tonnes are generated every year.
J&B can provide a range of collection services for both hazardous and non hazardous WEEE for recycling in a safe, authorised, and environmentally acceptable manner. This can include fridges, computers, monitors and TVs, large and small appliances, bulbs, tubes and lamps, and batteries. All of the Waste electrical and electronic equipment (excluding lamps and batteries) we collect is taken to a reprocessing plant where they are shredded into small pieces. Once shredded they are separated into glass, metals, plastics, and components.
