Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive


The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is one of a series of 'producer responsibility’ Directives that aims to minimise the impact of electrical and electronic goods on the environment by making EU producers of new equipment pay for the recycling and/or safe treatment and disposal of the products they put on the market when they eventually come to be thrown away.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive was agreed on 13 February 2003 and was laid before Parliament on 12 December 2006 and enter into force on 2 January 2007.

As a producer of Electrical and Electronic Equipment, Acco UK Ltd (Acco) has already

  • Identified which products fall within the Directive.
  • Collated all the product data (volume and weight), for each EU country, necessary to submit to the controlling bodies to establish its recovery obligation.
  • Complied with the WEEE product marking obligation by marking all products manufactured from 13th August 2005, with the crossed out "Wheelie Bin" symbol.
  • Registered with Valpak’s Producer Compliance Scheme our "unique producer number" is WEE/HB0045SY

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) legislation introduces new responsibilities for businesses and other non-household users of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). This includes businesses, schools, hospitals, and government agencies, when they dispose of their electrical waste. These organisations will need to ensure that all separately collected WEEE is treated and recycled.
