Statistics published by Defra have suggested that the 2017 collection target for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) has been missed, with compliance schemes expecting a ‘seven figure’ compliance fee.
However, some producer compliance schemes have remained calm, explaining that the figures are not necessarily disastrous. Others have said that the UK remains on target to meet EU targets once substantiated estimates are taken into account, pointing to a study which shows that up to 10% of scrap metal can be counted as large household appliances.
In these uniquely challenging times, where local authorities are being asked to do more with less, HWRCs are more important than ever.
