WEEE – Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment

Betts Envirometal has always prided itself on being at the forefront when it comes to precious metal recovery and we apply the same standards and high recovery rates to WEEE Waste as we have always done to gold and silver.
Since 1st July 2007 the WEEE directive became law in the UK meaning anyone disposing of WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment) must dispose of it through an authorised treatment facility.
With its Approved Authorised Treatment Facility (AATF) status, Betts Envirometal is the perfect partner to help you meet your legal waste disposal requirements. We operate a fleet of specialist vehicles and can collect your WEEE from anywhere in the UK at a day and time to suit your needs.
On collection we will provide all required duty of care paperwork and electrical equipment will be transported in Betts secure Vehicles equipped with tracker so we know where your WEEE is at all times.
For IT disposal we offer a secure destruction service where we ensure that all hard drives and storage devices are destroyed so that no information can be recovered.
At one of our specialist treatment facilities electronic equipment is stripped down into its basic materials such as copper, steel and plastics. Each material is then recycled through the most environmental efficient means possible to ensure zero materials from your WEEE waste goes to landfill.

AATF Certified

In order to process waste from WEEE producer compliance schemes and issue evidence notes, a site must be AATF Certified, this means the site meets strict guidelines and electrical equipment is treated in line with the Best Available Treatment, Recovery and Recycling Techniques (BATRRT).

Betts can process all your Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) at one of our Approved Authorised Treatment Facility. With sites in the Midlands and The Southeast of England serviced by a fleet of tracked specialist vehicles we are the ideal partner to meet all your recycling and recovery needs. We will collect from your premises at a date and time to suit you and issue all duty of care paperwork and certificates of destruction taking all the stress out of WEEE disposal.
