Each year in the UK around 2 million tonnes of WEEE items are discarded by businesses and households, from large appliances to electronic tools and equipment. The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 deal with the industrial recovery, recycling and treatment of WEEE; and this WEEE training course is to educate organisations on relevant legislation and best practice for dealing with electrical and electronic waste.
Due to their integral use of electronic equipment, many organisations across different sectors are a major contributor in the mass discarding of WEEE. This awareness training course will educate employees and employers on how to handle WEEE items, and ensure minimal environmental impact when getting rid of electronic waste.
Items classified as ‘EEE’ – Household appliances, IT equipment, toys equipment, medical devices, display equipment, automatic dispensers etc.
This course contains test questions and issues a certificate upon completion.
