Balcan WEEE Collection Service

Managing Your WEEE

Looking to dispose of your old WEEE electrical and electronic equipment? Look no further than Balcan’s WEEE collection and recycling service. Under the WEEE Directive, it’s crucial to recycle these items as they contain a complex mixture of materials, some of which are hazardous. That’s why Balcan are here to help.

With over 40 years of experience in lamp disposal & recycling Balcan’s WEEE collection service means you can maximise recycling of these items.

WEEE can be categorised into the following:

  • Fridges, freezers, ovens, microwaves, dishwashers
  • Tumble dryers, washing machines
  • Televisions, speakers, radios, music systems, phones
  • Treadmills, exercise bikes, electric rowing machines
  • Electric toothbrushes & blenders
  • Desktop computers, laptops, printers, fax machines, copying machines
  • Some forms of medical equipment
  • Electronic toys, games consoles, and some musical instruments
  • Lamps, heaters, and electric fans
  • Lighting

Can WEEE just be put in a skip?

WEEE is categorised as hazardous waste since certain components within electrical and electronic equipment contain hazardous substances, for example, printed circuit boards and cables. Therefore, WEEE cannot be disposed of in a skip.

Also, electronic and electrical waste like computers and phones often contains precious metals that can be recycled and reused to mitigate the environmental impact associated with e-waste. By properly treating and recycling WEEE, we can increase resource efficiency and support the shift to a circular economy.

How can we help you dispose of mixed WEEE?

Using a specialist company such as Balcan ensures you are in safe hands. We can collect all your WEEE and then sort & separate it into its relevant category. In the case of lighting we are able to process this at our licensed facilities. Other WEEE is then sent for recycling.
