At MG Waste Management we offer a high quality recycling and waste management service that will enable you to comply with WEEE rules and regulations. All relevant documentation will be issued and you can be confident that your waste is being recycled correctly, efficiently and effectively.

MG Waste Management hold WEEE specilist licences approved by the environment agency, the most important being an Approved Authorised Treatment Facility (AATF).
An AATF is a licensed ATF (1) (or registered exempt) site carrying out treatment on waste electrical and electronic wastes. Treatment can include de-pollution, disassembly, shredding, recovery or preparation for disposal. Any operator of a site or sites receiving WEEE direct from a designated collection facility (DCF), distributor or end-user can apply to become approved.

Only operators of approved ATFs (AATFs) can issue evidence notes for the treatment, recovery or recycling of WEEE that takes place in the UK. The evidence must relate to treatment, recovery and recycling being carried out on an approved site, or to further treatment, recovery and recycling carried out at further sites. Evidence of re-use and refurbishment of whole appliances will also count towards the recovery and recycling targets.

The evidence notes will be required by Producer Compliance Schemes on behalf of "producers" who will need to prove that a certain amount of WEEE has been treated, recovered and recycled.

Quarterly reports and independent audits have been mandated. Data which is misreported or inaccurate can lead to the suspension or cancellation of AATF status. MG Waste Management is fully compliant in this respect.

Our aim is to repair and refurbish as much of the WEEE that we receive, WEEE that cannot be repaired and refurbished will be used for parts and materials. This will ensure all WEEE is utilised, reducing the exploitation of our limited natural resources and use of ever expanding landfills.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) was introduced into UK law in January 2007 by the Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment Regulations 2006.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations (2006) States that ‘the general public have to manage and dispose of electrical waste in an approved and eco-friendly manner'
