Our Premises Are Covered by S2 / T11 Exemptions Permitting Us to Store / Handle Electronic Waste (WEEE Directive 2007)

We Also Help You Comply Fully With All Relevant Environmental Legislation

1. Environmental Protection Duty of Care Regulations 1991

  • We ensure you keep a written description of what has been transferred in the form of a Duty of Care Transfer Note when your redundant IT equipment is transferred to us

2. Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005/2009

  • When applicable we will issue a Hazardous Waste Consignment Note
  • The vehicles we use are covered by a Waste Carrier Licence
  • We are registered as a Hazardous Waste Producer

3. Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive 2007

  • Our 'Destruction Certificate' provides complete traceability by device, make, model, serial number and method/s of destruction, enabling you to remove redundant assets from your registry and demonstrate your organisation has met your WEEE obligations

Our Recycling Partner is Powered by 100% Renewable Energy: it is an Approved Authorised Treatment Facility (AATF) employing Best Available Treatment, Recovery and Recycling Techniques (BATRRT), both of which are requirements of the WEEE Directive. Following destruction, the remains of data-bearing storage media, along with other redundant IT equipment (e.g. projectors, cables, keyboards etc.) are shredded. The shredded metal and plastic components are separated, refined and passed to raw material manufacturers, with over 98% fully recycled and 0% to landfill. It operates the world's first leaded-glass furnace, which means that it can safely recover and recycle hazardous substances contained in leaded glass found in Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs) from televisions and computer monitors. We also have access to a purpose-built mercury-stripping facility, which can safely process Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD), which are rapidly replacing CRTs. We do not export e-waste (or so called ‘computer aid’) to developing countries because of the difficulty in ensuring that it does not end up as landfill.

NB: If you produce over 500kg of hazardous waste per annum (equivalent to approx 30 x 17” monitors) you must also register with the Environment Agency as a Hazardous Waste Producer. You can register online  here or alternatively we can register your site for you at cost, plus a small administration fee.
