Electrical Waste Recycling and Disposal

Electrical waste is the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. With new technology replacing old, equipment soon becomes redundant. The WEEE directive was introduced to govern how electrical waste is handled and recycled. Pure Planet Recycling are specialists in offering a cost effective electrical waste recycling service to businesses across England.

Many other companies specialise in purely computer recycling, however, Pure Planet Recycling handles almost any electrical equipment. If it uses a plug or battery we can recycle it. We collect the items from you and ensure that they are recycled legally and environmentally.

The electrical equipment we process is often end of life or damaged beyond repair so the best recycling practice is material recovery. An automated plant handles the recovery of the materials. The process involves breaking it down into small segments and then segregating the materials into large containers. A simple sounding task, but the machinery is very complex. These materials go back into the manufacturing chain to make new materials and products. The reuse of materials such as plastics and metal is favourable to using virgin materials. Details of the plant used can be found here.
