This week, the EA announced the overall UK WEEE collection target for 2015 is 506,878 tonnes. This is about 16,000 tonnes higher than the total amount of household WEEE collected and recorded as evidence on the Settlement Centre in 2014.
The overall target is significantly above the collection levels necessary to achieve the UK Member State target of 484,661 tonnes for 2015. However, it is important that the targets placed on PCSs are as far as possible reflective of likely WEEE arisings that producers have an obligation to finance.
Vikkie Fitzgerald, Clarity’s Project Manager, welcomed the publication of this year’s individual collection and recycling target for Clarity Compliance. She said: “I am pleased with the 2015 collection target for our membership. This will bring with it another strong year of WEEE recycling in the UK as a whole. In 2014, Clarity met its members’ obligations by sourcing and responsibly recycling the volume of waste electricals required, without the use of the Compliance Fee.”
She continued: “Using our trusted network of AATFs as part of the Recycle with Clarity initiative, we are able to control our levels of recycling to ensure our members have confidence in our ability to handle their varied obligations under the UK WEEE Regulations. As our membership grows, so does our network of sites.”
Clarity has run a low-cost WEEE compliance scheme since the WEEE Regulations were adopted by the UK in 2007. Our members enjoy a wide range of benefits, which is only one of the reasons why they choose to stay with the scheme year after year.
