WEEE Waste

What is WEEE Waste?

WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. WEEE Waste is classed as Hazardous Waste because it nearly all contains POPs (Persistent Organic Pollutants). POPs don’t break down in the environment, instead they bioaccumulate and then cause potential adverse effects on human health.
