Over the next few months, we’ll be running WWW. We’ll be covering a range of topics about all things WEEE.


What is WEEE Waste?

I know, peculiar name, right? And before you say, nope, it’s not toilet waste!

WEEE is waste electrical and electronic equipment. This can range from small items such as your laptop to IT & Telecoms infrastructure powering networks nationally.

WEEE is often very much an afterthought. It’s estimated that over 1.8 million tonnes of electrical waste are discarded by households and companies each year.

Now that’s a lot of WEEE.

Well let’s be honest. If you’re getting a new company tablet or your offices are being fitted with new IT infrastructure, does it really matter what happens to your old stuff? Well, that’s where Plexstar come in – we specialise in computer recycling.

The WEEE Directive

Under the WEEE directive introduced in 2006, which became law in 2013. It’s up to companies like us to recycle, reuse, recover or dispose of your WEEE in an environmentally friendly and secure way. So, whether it’s company laptops and servers to global IT & Telecom contracts. Plexstar are here to help.
