Disposal of WEEE and meaning of the crossed out wheeley bin symbol


In 2002 the European Union introduced the Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). The directive requires you as Resller or end-user to dispose of any WEEE separately from other waste.


Electrical and Electronic Equipment is labeled with the above ‘crossed out wheeled bin’ symbol.


WEEE waste may contain hazardous substances that should not end-up in the environment and can have adverse effects if they do. PPS Ltd is assured by our suppliers that no such substances are used in parts or equipment which are all manufactured to the relevant latest RoHS, CE, UKCA and WEEE regulations.


Furthermore, WEEE is a vast source of rare raw materials. With the ever rising worldwide demand for new equipment and the ever decreasing volume of natural raw materials, letting this potential source go to waste is totally unacceptable.


If equipment is collected separately, the equipment can be recycled and up to 85 to 90% of the equipment can be re-used as new material saving the use of virgin raw materials and energy for producing these.

For these reasons PPS Ltd is asking you, the Distributor , Reseller or end-user, to take any waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) to your nearest collection facility. If you are unaware of the location of such, please contact  your local authority. They will be able inform you of the disposal options at a facility in your area.
