B2B Compliance gave a presentation to the WEEE Scheme Forum and representatives of the Environment Agency at the Forum’s latest meeting. The presentation, already given to BIS officials, outlined some of the potential ramifications of forthcoming changes to the WEEE legislation and, in particular, the challenges relating to the new collection targets which come into force in 2016. The key issue is that the current collection rate of B2B WEEE, recorded within the WEEE system, is about 5% and, without taking into account that the majority of old products go down alternative ‘disposal’ routes (such as scrap, asset management etc.,) the forthcoming targets would be impossible for the B2B sector to reach. There is now an increasing recognition by the various stakeholders that an exercise needs to be conducted to identify and quantify these alternative routes.
