The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment, including Electric radiators & electric heating. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge. The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Recycling reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
