WEEE legislation and ICT recycling

New legislation came into force in 2007 to cover waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). It is now a requirement that you obtain and keep proof that your ICT WEEE was given to a ICT waste management and recycling company such as Concept, and was treated and disposed of in an environmentally sound way. The regulations have significant implications those who treat or recover ICT WEEE, and stipulate that users must store, collect, treat, recycle and dispose of ICT WEEE separately from other waste.
