The WEEE Directive
The Directive, which came into full effect on July 1st 2007, has been implemented across most EU countries and is aimed at diverting recyclable electronic waste away from landfill. The legal obligation sits squarely on the shoulders of the waste producer.
They must ensure that redundant electronic waste is re-used or recycled wherever possible. The Government is hoping to force both businesses and consumers to examine the amount of waste they produce, and diverting waste to recycling wherever possible. Under this Directive, items such as computer hard drives, monitors, and in fact anything with a plug, has to be separated from other waste and marked for recycling or reuse.
