Repic chief appointed to WEEE Forum board

Philip Morton, chief executive of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) compliance scheme, Repic, has been appointed as a director on the WEEE Forum board.

Morton will steer the association to help develop a more effective, efficient and environmentally sustainable European WEEE system.

Morton said: “Repic has been closely involved with the WEEE Forum for many years, and as such, I have witnessed first-hand how effective the association has been in helping to shape the system.

“It’s fantastic to be welcomed into such a passionate organisation and hopefully we can adopt and adapt some of the current best practices across Europe into the new UK Regulations when the recast is transposed.”

“As European member states are currently in the process of transposing the recently announced revised WEEE Directive into national law, this is an extremely crucial time for the WEEE system so it’s fantastic to have the opportunity to be involved in such an influential organisation at this important time.”

The new board was appointed by a general election of WEEE Forum members.

The organisation is a European association representing the interests of 41 electrical and electronic waste collection and recycling organisations run on behalf of producers.
