What counts as WEEE waste?

According to UK legislation, there are fourteen categories of WEEE waste that businesses need to be aware of. These are:

Large appliances

This is any large electric appliance and includes refrigerators, freezers, ovens, and dishwashers.

Small appliances

Small or handheld household items like microwaves, toasters, vacuum cleaners, and mixers.

IT and telecoms

Computers, photocopiers, fax machines, and telephones are all recyclable IT equipment.

Consumer products

Domestic items like TVs, video cameras, speakers, and radios, all count as WEEE waste.


Both compact and straight fluorescent tubes and high intensity discharge lamps are WEEE.

Electric power tools

Items like chainsaws, drills, and sewing machines all count, but not large-scale stationary tools.

Toys, leisure, and sports equipment

Includes home gym equipment like static bikes, games consoles, and toys with electric components.

Medical equipment

Dialysis machines, analysers, and medical freezers must be recycled after they have been properly cleaned.

Monitoring equipment

Thermostats, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and other regulators and monitors fall under WEEE.

Automatic dispensers

Dispensing equipment like coffee machines and ATMs count as WEEE and must be properly dealt with.

Display equipment

Equipment used for displays in retail and hospitality often include elements that must be recycled.

Appliances containing refrigerants

All items containing refrigerants fall under WEEE, including air conditioners, mini fridges, and dehumidifiers.

Lamps and LEDs

Gas charge lamps and any LED light sources all have components that can be recycled.

Photovoltaic panels

Solar panels are full of unique wiring and materials that means they must be responsibly disposed of.

Ways of disposing of WEEE Waste

When taking stock of your WEEE items we identify the best way to responsibly dispose of them. This includes repair and reuse, where we will either fix the items in question or find a new home for them. We can sell the items on your behalf or donate the proceeds to charity. Through responsible recycling and refurbishment practices, we can ensure that items are given a second life or components are reused elsewhere. When you choose ER Logistics you can be assured that you are working with a team that are committed to sustainable practices. This means your electrical waste will always be disposed of in a responsible and environmentally friendly manner.
