WEEE Recycling

Welcome to Pure Planet Recycling, an award winning WEEE recycling company offering a range of services for businesses including computer recycling, data destruction and a WEEE collection service. Using our own trained staff and collection vehicles, we are able to achieve excellent service levels.

Upon collection, duty of care waste paperwork is provided for both the hazardous and non hazardous waste. Equipment is then processed within our Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) in Bedfordshire which holds an Environmental Permit, (EPR/AB3101SQ). This can be verified on the Environment Agency public register. Our WEEE recycling service ensures that your equipment is recycled safely and effectively within the UK.

If you wish to safely store your WEEE prior to a collection, you can hire or purchase one of our WEEE storage containers.
