V2 Cigs & WEEE Distributor Regulations
European member states including the UK have agreed to reduce the amount of WEEE that is being disposed of in landfill sites. Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment [WEEE] Regulations are UK law and will continue after Brexit.
The UK Government has a published policy on electrical equipment reuse and disposal.
The quantity of WEEE goods being sent to landfill needs to be reduced because the amount of landfill space available in the UK is decreasing. Keeping WEEE out of landfill sites means there is more available landfill space for non-recyclable waste goods. Some WEEE goods can be reused and/or recycled. WEEE items may contain hazardous substances. If placed in landfill sites the hazardous substances in WEEE may pollute soil and contaminate water supplies. Any contamination might damage human health and the environment.
Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites.
