Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) collection: code of practice

How a designated collection facility (DCF) must manage its separately collected WEEE.

Detail

DCFs and producer compliance schemes (PCSs) have a responsibility to maximise the separate collection of WEEE. This code sets out:

  • why it exists and who it applies to
  • minimum operational standards
  • guidance on what the contract must include
  • enforcement action for non compliance

You must follow the rules in this code to meet the conditions of your DCF and PCS approval.
