On this week’s show we looked at recycling with WEEE Ireland

Did you know?

WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) is anything that has a plug or a battery  and is at the end of its useful life. 

WEEE Ireland is a not for profit organisation, committed to delivering cost effective  compliance on behalf of our Producer Members. 

WEEE Ireland represents 96% of the Irish battery industry and 74% of the household  electrical and electronic industry who have a Producer responsibility under EU Battery  Directive 2006/66/EC & WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU to organise and finance the  environmental management of their products at their end of life. 

WEEE Ireland has been operational since 2005 and has been the Scheme of choice in Ireland  maintaining majority market share across all sectors. WEEE Ireland operates under the  approval of the Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications.
