When businesses produce waste, they have a range of responsibilities. These include complying with the requirements of the Duty of Care, and if they’re producing hazardous waste, they may need to register as a producer under the Hazardous Waste Regulations
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) legislation introduces new responsibilities for businesses and other non-household users of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). This includes businesses, schools, hospitals, and government agencies, when they dispose of their electrical waste. These organisations will need to ensure that all separately collected WEEE is treated and recycled. Whether the business or the producer of the (WEEE) pays for this depends on the circumstances.
