Whatever your WEEE requirements, at Burrwood Environmental Services Ltd we have the answer.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is one of the fastest growing types of waste in the western world. Each year over 2 million tonnes of new electrical equipment is sold in the UK alone. One day all of these products will become waste.
Some of the most common items to be found in the workplace are fridges, microwaves, computers, printers, coffee machines, tools, lighting equipment, automatic dispensers, water coolers, shredders, faxes and photocopiers to name but a few.
Some of these items can contain hazardous materials such as heavy metal, mercury, lead and cadmium. If these items were sent to landfill, incinerated or recovered without any pre-treatment they would have the potential to contaminate the air, water and soil.
Therefore all collected equipment is assessed and either restored for re-use, or stripped of components for re-use and destroyed for recycling. IT media is physically destroyed for data destruction. However, for clients with sensitive data we recommend that you use our data destruction service, which is certified to NISPOM standards, for added comfort and security.
Protect the environment, ensure compliance and help to recover resources.
