New legislation came into force in 2007 to cover waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). It is now a requirement that you obtain and keep proof that your electronic equipment WEEE was given to a electronic equipment waste management and recycling company such as Concept, and was treated and disposed of in an environmentally sound way.
