This is a very important matter that you must consider when dealing with your junk.

In modern London virtually every home and business is packed with technology, so please read our advice carefully as it will almost certainly be applicable to you at some point in the future.

Some years ago it was recognised that certain electrical items contained extremely hazardous substances which would prove dangerous if not disposed of properly. This led to a European Directive which eventually became law in the United Kingdom in July 2007. These regulations are known as WEEE which stands for Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment.

Initially this was intended to ensure that manufacturers of affected equipment would be responsible for their safe disposal. As is often the case, the scope of these laws expands with time. As a rubbish removal company that deals with large quantities of WEEE waste from all sorts of London offices, we know all about this.
