WEEE Directives


As a consumer you have a responsibility to dispose of your E-Waste in an ethical and environmentally friendly manner, which should fall in line with the WEEE Directive.

This legislation was introduced in January 2007 and is aimed at reducing the amount of electronic equipment being produced and encourage people to reuse, recycle and recover it.

Another aim of the WEEE directive is to improve the environmental performance of businesses that manufacture, supply, use, recycle and recover electronic equipment.

If your product uses electricity then it more or less covered by the WEEE regulations, however below are some technical guidelines:

  • Is dependant on electronic currents or electromagnetic fields in order to work properly, including equipment for the generation, transfer and measurement of such currents and fields
  • Is designed for use with a voltage rating not exceeding 1000V for alternating current 1500V for direct current
  • Falls into one of the 10 categories in schedule 1 to the WEEE regulations



  • "BIOREC offered excellent advice throughout the process and even gave information on how to maintain a healthy working environment by purchasing eco-friendly equipment." ​​
