Why a campaign to recycle electricals?

Unwanted electricals are the fastest growing waste stream in the world – and the UK.

Tackling this is a shared responsibility between producers and consumers of electricals – and will benefit us all.

Producers in the UK have an obligation to work with their customers to reduce unwanted electricals being incinerated or sent to landfill. This is managed by the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations.
