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, Consumers, Employees, Communities, Stakeholders and the Planet as a whole.

A widely accepted approach from Companies is the support of community-based development projects and establishment of education facilities through provision of financial or Skills aid to local organszations and impoverished communities in the UK & Developing countries aiding sustainable development potential and is invaluable.

CfC & sister charity Recycling for Charites completely fulfils this philosophy by providing practical, sustainable solutions to empower and enriche lives of people from poor communities, including re-using ICT equipment to fund and provide Education, Training and Development initiatives across the UK and to developing countries.
