WEEE Recycling

WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) is the fastest-growing waste stream worldwide. CCL (North) Ltd. is proud to offer the most comprehensive WEEE recycling service in the UK, allowing our customers to meet their legal obligations to properly dispose of WEEE equipment, whilst going far beyond the minimum standards for environmental protection.

Many WEEE recycling companies focus on high value equipment that can be easily reused, whereas at CCL we continually invest in developing new processes and customers to ensure maximum reuse and recycling across a broad range of products. Our carefully managed processes ensure we achieve the highest recycling rates and that nothing is sent to landfill. We work hard to extend product lifecycles and work within the Circular Economy.

We are fully licenced to collect and process all types of WEEE equipment, including small and large domestic appliances, refrigeration equipment, household and industrial batteries, fluorescent tubes and luminaries and display equipment. We follow stringent data destruction processes to ensure that any data is removed before reusing or recycling equipment.

Secure WEEE Recycling

WEEE equipment follows our core process from your enquiry, through collection and data destruction. Once we have completed any necessary data destruction, there are 3 options for the secure recyling of WEEE equipment, based on user preference & component value.

  • 1

    Re-use

    Wherever possible, we re-use complete products. We have established our own brand, ReBorn, to expand our industry-leading re-use capability and to increase confidence and trust in our range of refurbished WEEE equipment.

  • 2

    Recover

    Where re-use is not possible we dismantle the equipment to recover components. We’ve developed new processes and identified customers to re-use components or sub-assemblies as spare parts, including through our sister company Restructa.

  • 3

    Recycle

    We carefully dismantle the remaining parts to recover base materials. All our processes are carried out using specialist equipment to prevent any escape of harmful materials such as lead, mercury or cadmium. We use carefully audited and fully licensed specialist downstream refiners to provide re-use and recycling for all the precious metals and base materials recovered.

The WEEE Directive

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations Act was introduced in the UK in 2007 and amended in 2013. It covers most goods which come with a battery or a plug. The objective is to limit waste, promote a healthy industry standard of recycling, and to incentivise environmentally friendly product development. It is estimated that the U.K. discards over 2 million tonnes of WEEE items each year. Often these items comprise a complex assortment of materials, some of which are hazardous. These items carry health risks if they are not dealt with appropriately.

Innovative WEEE Recycling

Achieving the highest recycling rates in the industry is no mean feat and takes ongoing commitment and investment, and a willingness to think outside the box. Where other recycling companies may struggle to find customers for some by-products and ultimately send these to landfill, we are fully committed to avoiding this outcome and have established sister companies to build new customers and products for refurbished WEEE equipment and recycled components.

In line with the Circular Economy we have developed our own brand, ReBorn. Our expert repair team achieves reuse on all types of IT equipment and associated assets; televisions, heaters, lawnmowers, Hifi systems, amplifiers, speakers, CD players, DVD players, coffee makers, Xbox, Wii, PlayStation, lamps, telephones, mobile phones, vacuum cleaners, floor steamers, hand tools, drills, fans, test equipment, multimeters, PAT testers, oscilloscopes, Sky boxes, electronic musical keyboards, electronic guitars, sewing machines and more.

Through Restructa, we safely and responsibly recycle all forms of display screens, including CRT, LCD, LED and Plasma screens. We use the glass from the screens to manufacture a reusable decorative aggregate that is approved by SEPA, used by many councils and stocked in over 300 garden centres nationwide. This product has its own website – www.glasglo.co.uk. There is also dust by-product produced from the glass recycling process which we sell to be remanufactured into decorative tiles called SilicaStone.
