Preston-based materials reclamation specialist Recycling.co.uk, is helping companies get to grips with their obligations under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive by offering alternative ways of ensuring compliance. WEEE producers must put in place a legitimate mechanism for showing that they are managing waste properly. While many companies subscribe to producer compliance schemes, others have fallen through the net. Managing director Charles Jackson said: For some producers, existing compliance schemes do not necessarily provide an ideal solution, either because they lack flexibility because the company in question has identified a more cost-effective way to meet its responsibilities. We can work with companies whichever way they choose to go. We are also servicing several compliance schemes, which are proving to be very successful and relatively simple to administrate. But we are also providing a number of large producers with an individually tailored business-to-business service. We provide this service to companies such as Epson and Morphy Richards, to local councils and to some manufacturers that people might not normally associate with waste electrical equipment, such as Nestlé.
