WEEE is one of the fasting growing forms of waste. It must be disposed of safely and with minimal damage to avoid harmful metals, such as mercury and lead, from getting into landfill soils and possibly polluting water supplies.
Like all other services, we offer a comprehensive service including a detailed onsite inspection to identify your requirements; our trained staff will be on hand to pack and clear all of your WEEE waste.
We dispose of all types of waste electrical and electronic equipment. This is then packed into crates and tonne bags and sent off for disposal and recycling. Our clearances and disposal are all certified, any hard drives are wiped if needed be and after disposal certificate of destruction is provided.
Hurn Recycling can remove all your electrical equipment and guarantee its disposal in line with WEEE legislation.

There is a number of reasons to choose Hurn Recycling for your WEEE recycling, disposal and collection. It is our sole objective to make it as easy as possible for you to get the WEEE removal service you need. Here is a few of the many reasons to choose Hurn Recycling:
In the UK, we discard approximately 155,000 tonnes of electricals every year, instead of reusing or recycling them. This poses a major threat to the environment and to human health.
If electrical resources are not being recycled and end up in landfill, valuable resources are more than likely lost forever.
In the UK, approximately £370 million per year is lost due to the loss of valuable raw materials such as copper, aluminium, gold and steel.
The production of electricals creates carbon emissions. Recycling our old electricals would cut a considerable amount of CO2 emmissions.
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations (2013) became law in the UK on 1 January 2014 and replaced the WEEE Regulations 2006. The exact treatment of WEEE can vary enormously according to the category of WEEE and technology that is used. Some treatment facilities utilise large-scale shredding technologies, whilst other use a disassembly process, which can be manual, automated or a combination of both.
