Recycling of WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) is a specialist part of the waste and recycling industry. Over the past 10 years it has been a rapidly growing industry due to the implementation at government level of the original WEEE Directive in the UK (2006). This led to specific requirements in the recovery, reuse, recycling and treatment of WEEE components.

Further information on the WEEE regulations 2013 can be found in the Government Guidance Notes produced by the Department for INNOVATION and SKILLS.
