Ecosurety Comment on Q3 WEEE Collection Figures

Company News



Mark Sayers, principal consultant with resource efficiency specialist Ecosurety, says:


"The net waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) collection up to Q3 is over, which is a relief, but there will be a headache for compliance schemes and producers so close to the end of the year because the report strongly suggests the number of lamps collected will not meet that individual target.


"We will be speaking to our members and urging them to increase their collection of lamps wherever possible so that we can recycle this waste stream, and help lamps meets the target by 31st December. If the UK doesn't hit the target, schemes and producers could fall into the compliance fee scheme, which will be costly.


"We also noticed that the display category overshoot was caused in part by waste collections not aligned to schemes. While it's great news that target looks likely to be exceeded, we will be talking to Defra about how to better align the costs incurred for treatment of this WEEE, and the actual source of this display waste stream."
