Legislative Compliance

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) came into effect as of April 2007 and aims to reduce Landfill usage of "End of Life" electrical and electronic equipment . More information can be found at www.environment-agency.gov.uk/weee.

Regulations state; "Business users are responsible, along with producers, for ensuring their WEEE is correctly treated and reprocessed"

We are fully compliant and registered with all UK and EU statutory bodies including the Environment Agency as waste carriers, WEEE storage and "End of life" disposal.

Corporate & Social Responsibility

Today's organisations maintain responsibility for their impact on the Environment as are Consumers, Employees, Communities being Stakeholders for our Planet. .

A widely accepted approach from Companies is the support of community-based development projects, including establishment of wide ranging education facilities. Be it provision of financesl or Skills to aid local organisations within impoverished communities of the UK & Developing countries, such support to aid sustainable development is invaluable.

CfC & sister charity Recycling for Charites fulfil this philosophy of providing practical, sustainable solutions to empower and enriche lives of people from poorer communities. Including the development of Education, Training and Development initiatives across the UK & Overseas. Can you Help?
