Recolight WEEE experts are here to guide you

The WEEE Regulations were introduced to the UK in 2007. Their purpose is to make sure Electrical &  Electronic Equipment, EEE, is recycled, keeping this harmful waste stream from landfill.

For Waste EEE, we get WEEE.

Recolight has been recycling WEEE lighting since 2007. We have a team of WEEE experts to help guide you through everything related to the WEEE Regulations.

WEEE compliance help for Lighting Producers

Our Lighting Producer Members refer to the Recolight Member Team as their Compliance Department and here’s why:

  • With new products coming into scope of the WEEE Regulations, the team have produced a guide outlining the changes. They are also at the end of the phone to explain what this means.

  • Reporting of products put on market can be a tricky task to start with, but the team offer reminders for reporting deadlines, and guidance for our Members, through the reporting process for new products.
  • All advice offered is to make sure all our Members stay compliant and take the administrative burden away from the producers; helping them to concentrate on their core business of selling lighting.

WEEE Regulation help for collectors of waste lighting

Recolight offers a free recycling service for all lighting in scope of the WEEE Regulations. The Recolight co-collection service for lamps and light fittings is unique. No Other UK WEEE Compliance schemes offers this as a free service to their full Lighting Producer Members. The FREE lamp service is available to all UK businesses (minimum thresholds apply).

Reporting of WEEE

The UK’s four Environment Agencies, one for each UK nation, have reporting procedures in place for tracking, storing and moving WEEE. This is to enable a reporting process to make sure WEEE is treated responsibly and recorded correctly.
