Why Recycle?

WEEE has been introduced to increase the recycling and/or re-use of electrical and electric equipment and regulate the disposal of hazardous substances found in many electrical products. By recycling we can reduce the landfill usage and protect ourselves and the world from health and environmental risks. Jadestone Recycling Ltd is an Island company striving to keep the South Coast as beautiful as it already is. Please recycle!!!!

Is mercury released from your lamp collection process?

No, all the fluorescent tubes are bulked and stored into a separate waste stream and sent to a central recycling facility. No mercury is released during our process.

Can we just put used torch batteries in our normal waste?

New legislation will require you to handle batteries separately. This already applies to lamps.

Do Jadestone handle domestic waste?

Yes, but we have to make a charge. Domestic waste can normally be recycled at the local civic amenity facility, but some items, for example commercial fridges used by a householder, may not be accepted. Also, if you need your computer hard disk destroyed we offer that service.

What are WEEE regulations?

These regulations require that all waste electrical items be stored and treated separately to other waste streams to ensure maximum re-use and recycling. Domestic electrical waste can normally be recycled at your local civic amenity facility. Jadestone deals primarily with local authorities, schools, NHS trusts and companies to ensure all electrical waste is correctly disposed of and that our customers meet and exceed all the relevant legislations and regulations.
