Electrical WEEE (Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment)

Wasteology Manage A WEEE Waste Collection for Somerset and Devon

Electronic goods have a short shelf life in todays high consumable society. Technology supersedes itself at least every year, often before the existing products have stopped functioning. That is why it is important that we all take responsibility for recycling these goods. Specialists are fully licensed  and trained to handle these Special Waste types and extract the potential hazardous chemicals that can be found in WEEE Waste. 

The Recycling Process Of A Fridge Freezer

  • In a Fridge Freezer the compressor oil and refrigerant gases are initially removed.
  • The actual compressors are then removed and recycled.
  • The remainder is then shredded in a controlled environment, allowing the capture of any CFCs.
  • The metals, plastics and even the powdered foam are all separated and where possible recycled.
