What is WEEE recycling?

WEEE recycling (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) is the disposal of electronic waste. The recycling of electronic items needs to be dealt with in various ways due to the nature of the items as well as issues such as data protection when dealing with computers.

WEEE recycling is something that not many people may consider when it comes to their waste strategy or plan. It can be difficult to dispose of yourself especially when concerning the environment.
