Advantages of WEEE Waste collection

So why should you think about having your WEEE Waste collected? And what are the benefits for your company? Well, there are a number of different  advantages of WEEE Waste collection, including:

  • flexible collection when it suits you
  • responsible waste management
  • save money

Flexible collection of WEEE Waste

Because we come to collect the waste, at a time that suits you, your waste management can easily be scheduled into your working day. And you wont need to think about organizing transport and using employees to take the waste to the scrapyard. Your company can meet the legal WEEE requirements, while you take a coffee break. And then be paid for the waste products too! That’s a win/win in our book!

Responsible waste management

Every year an estimated 2 million tonnes of WEEE items are discarded by householders and companies in the UK. Disposing of this in an irresponsible manner, or filling landfills with this kind of waste can be hugely detrimental to the environment. Dangerous substances and chemicals inside electronic equipment can pollute the air, ground and surface water, and subsequently poison land and sea animals. Heavy metals can also find their way into crops and drinking water. So if your company is committed to green policies and reducing the carbon footprint, WEEE Waste collection is essential.

Save money

When you think about the time you would need to spend to sort, pack, and deliver your WEEE Waste to a specialist disposal site, it’s clear to see that this is a job that will cost money. Especially as there may not be a specialst site anywhere in your area. As a result, one of the biggest advantages of WEEE Waste collection is that your company can save money. In fact, you’ll even be paid for the electronic waste!
