The Joint Trade Associations (JTA) group, of which Recolight is a member, has announced its support for the Government’s WEEE consultation. The JTA group comprises eight trade associations and four producer-led compliance schemes, collectively representing approximately 90% of all WEEE producer responsibility in the UK.
The recast of the WEEE directive was at long last published in the Official Journal this month. It has taken over four years to prepare. Recolight strongly supports many of the changes it introduces – particularly the increased member state collection targets. It is not yet clear how these will be cascaded within the UK.
