WEEE Disposal

IT-GreenĀ® offers a professional service for the treatment of WEEE, covering all 10 categories. We collect, transport and reprocess in-house, recovering numerous materials vital to our manufacturing industry and economy as a whole. However, the waste management system places emphasis upon the waste heirarchy and we believe it is an important aspect of waste management as a whole. As a result, we operate a system of re-use wherever possible, employing BS PAS 141 as a guide for electrical testing.

 

Materials that do leave our facility have been reprocessed to an extent that results in re-classification under the European Waste calatlogue, meaning that they cannot be re-used in their original form and are instead processed as graded metals, plastics and glass.

Secure reprocessing

What You Need to Know:
  • Wastes may only be transported by a Person Authorised to do so (unless it’s your own waste).
  • You must obtain a waste transfer note at the point of collection, signed by both parties (it protects you legally)- get a copy of it before letting your waste leave site.
  • Under no circumstances should you allow hazardous waste to leave your possession unless a hazardous waste consignment note is produced and signed for by both yourself and the person collecting the waste- get a copy of this before letting your waste leave!
  • The Hazardous Waste Consignment note must contain details of the place said waste is being taken to (Part E).
  • A further copy of the hazardous waste note (or other documentation) should arrive within a few months- The Part E Certificate should have been signed by the Waste Management Facility, showing that they received the waste.

Don’t be Misled when it comes to what and what isn’t classed as Hazardous Wastes. A lot of electronic waste is hazardous- there’s Laptop batteries that contain Nickel, Lithium and Cadmium. There’s Mercury in many flat panel screens and flatbed scanners. Fridges can contain CFCs and HCFCs that are ozone depleting and have to be captured during decomissioning. Large electrolytic capacitors contain Poly-chlorinated Biphenals and many pieces of electronic hardware are encased in Plastics containing Brominated Flame Retardants.

In effect, the aim of applying the Term Hazardous to a given waste is to make sure it remains within a trace-able system that ensures it’s ultimate disposal is at a facility licensed and capable to deal with it.
