Over recent years numerous regulations and directives have been enforced by our government and the European Union. Their aim is to protect the environment and make it a safer place for all. These regulations and directives include;
- Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005
- The European Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directive
- Battery Directive
- Environmental Protection Act 1990
The above regulations have a direct impact on the way your company may dispose of used electronic equipment. This in turn directly affects your corporate responsibility and activities.
ECD is registered with the Environmental Agency as carriers and processors of electronic waste and operate to ISO 9000:2000 & ISO 14001 Standards. It is our aim to offer legal waste disposal services for organisations to manage the ever increasing levels of WEEE produced. Having over a decade of experience in the technology and recycling arena we understand and appreciate the problems facing organisations in meeting the strict waste management requirements that have been introduced.

We offer all the requisite documentation to all our customers to ensure full compliance with current regulations and together with full traceability you can be rest assured that your electronic waste is being processed in accordance with all legislative requirements.
