A fifth of WEEE recycled through ‘unofficial’ routes

Are you using a proper data destruction and recycling company or an illegal E-waste exporter?

Thousands of tonnes of waste electrical equipment are being diverted from landfill each year through ‘unofficial’ routes such as ebay, car boot sales and incineration, according to new research from WRAP.

The report, titled ‘Market Flows of WEEE materials’ indicates that around 58% of WEEE disposed of in 2010 was reused, reprocessed or recovered in the UK, significantly higher than the 37% reported through approved authorised treatment facilities (AATFs).
