WEEE COMPLIANCE

WHAT IS WEEE COMPLIANCE?

Solar Panels, inverters, batteries and other electronic and electrical equipment are all classified as Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE).

 

Once EEE reaches the end of its usable life, it is defined as Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).


It is crucial to prevent the improper disposal of WEEE. If these products are not disposed of correctly, they can cause serious environmental damage and danger to human health.

There are regulations at both the national and European Union levels to address the constant increase in WEEE produced each year. The WEEE Directive is the European Union regulation and the WEEE Regulations are the UK’s equivalent. These regulations aim to ensure the correct management, recycling and disposal of WEEE.

Manufacturers are obliged to use the "crossed out wheelie bin" symbol on EEE to indicate that it must not be incinerated or disposed of in landfill along with general waste.

Companies that manufacture, import and put EEE onto the market in the UK (including distributors and retailers) are classed as Producers and have a number of obligations under the WEEE Regulations, such as being part of a Producer Compliance Scheme (PCS). Each Producer has a Producer Registration Number.
