WEEE Electrical Waste Collection

SafeGroup is experienced in the collection of waste electrical and electronic equipment, known commonly as WEEE. We can advise customers about which items are covered by WEEE regulations and then dispose of them safely to ensure regulatory compliance, protect the environment, and to maximise waste reuse and recycling.

Electrical waste collection

WEEE can contain significant amounts of metals that are both harmful to the environment and can be recycled to make best use of resources. These include lead, cadmium, and mercury. WEEE is also often associated with plastic waste.

Also, metals used in batteries, including lithium and cobalt, can be mistakenly mixed up in WEEE, increasing the cost of disposal and the risk of waste fires. A report in January 2021 calculated that lithium battery fires in WEEE cost the UK economy £150m a year.

SafeGroup will ensure you manage WEEE correctly in accordance with the WEEE directive which aims to divert electrical and electronic waste from landfill, where the metals can cause pollution, and incineration.

Who we work for

SafeGroup provides a WEEE collection service for a wide range of companies and across many sectors. They include retailers, manufacturers, public sector organisations, such as schools, colleges and health facilities, and IT installation specialists. We also provide a planned and reactive WEEE collection service for other waste management companies and waste brokers.

A secure WEEE collection service

SafeGroup’s WEEE collection service is both safe and secure. We will dispose of your WEEE in accordance with your specific needs, including ensuring the destruction of equipment to safeguard your security and protect your company brand.

WEEE is a hugely diverse waste category, covering many different products and materials. Some WEEE is hazardous and some is not. Both issues can make it tricky to maintain compliance.

WEEE that has been fly-tipped can present particular risk, in terms of injury hazards on broken materials, leaking of hazardous materials, for example from fridges, and sorting of jumbled waste types.

SafeGroup’s teams are experienced at handling these multiple risks on behalf of clients so fly-tipped WEEE is always cleared safely and legally, with all documentation provided.

WEEE we collect includes:

  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers
  • Light fixtures
  • Computers and monitors
  • Computer peripherals
  • Printers
  • Switchgear
  • Air conditioning units
  • Manufacturing equipment
  • Shop tills
  • Microwave ovens
  • TVs and video screens
  • Electrical wiring
