Hazardous Waste Recyclers Warn Businesses of Danger of Legal Ignorance

Commercial Waste Recycling Company Ecolamp Ltd issued a warning to UK businesses to make sure they’re aware of their responsibilities in the disposal of lamps, bulbs and electrical equipment.

The failure of any UK business to comply with The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations or WEEE regulations which came into force in 2007 means large fines and potentially serious environmental consequences.

“This is another potentially risky area for UK businesses who are not aware that the law covers whether the business or what’s know as the ‘producer’ of electrical equipment that the business uses is responsible for the collection, treatment and recycling of it at the end of it’s life. We’ve put a downloadable ‘FREE WEEE Fact Sheet’ on the home page of to help” says Mike.

Ecolamp stress that they can handle all aspects of collection, storage, treatment, recycling, disposal and correct WEEE regulations compliance on behalf of any organisation that needs to dispose of and recycle waste bulbs or lamps such as old fluorescent tubes, whether on a one-off or regular basis.
Ecolamp offer a simple to understand pricing structure based on a price for a lamp storage unit, and the price of collecting and recycling the contents. Ecolamp issue all necessary documentation and Waste Recycling Certificates.
