What is WEEE?

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive has been put in place by the European Community to promote the collection, recycling and recovery targets for all types of electrical goods and equipment. In short, the WEEE Directive sets responsibility for the disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment on businesses that manufacture, import and re-brands such equipment.

Am I affected by WEEE?

If your business involves any of the following, with relation to electronic waste and equipment, then you will be affected by the WEEE Directive.

  • Manufactures
  • Imports
  • Re-brands
  • Distributes
  • Retails
  • Uses and intends to discard

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!!!!

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.

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.

When you recycle computers is there a risk that our data can be seen by others?

No, all the hard drives in computers we receive are electrically degaussed then physically crushed. There is no risk of your data being seen by anyone else. We are registered to ISO standard 27001: Information security and follow rigid procedures with regards to the safety of your data.

Can you certify that our disks have been destroyed?

Yes, we can provide a certificate of destruction at a small charge. This will assist you to comply with your data protection legislation and internal audit procedures.
