FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
Below you can find questions that are frequently asked by our customers. Please don’t hesitate in calling us if you have a specific question that we haven’t answered.
There can be a variety of different components that are classified as hazardous. For example a lightbulb contains mercury, unless it is a led bulb. Also you will find an average TV contains 6% metal and 50% glass, whereas a stove cooker is only 6% glass and 89% metal. Materials found in other electronic equipment can include plastics, ceramics and precious metals.
Currently the most common form of WEEE waste, making up 40%, are large household appliances (eg. Cookers, washing machines, dryers and fridges). However, there are also other large volumes of It equipment such as computers, monitors and televisions (over two million are suspected to be discarded a year).
Following the WEEE waste recycling regulations all householders have a duty to recycle their electronic and IT equipment in a safe and proper manner. Check the item’s/appliances disposal information and identify whether it shows a crossed out wheelie bin. If so, then you will need to have it disposed of by a household recycling centre or contact a third party such Cartridge Recycling UK who can offer cash for your items!
