HELP SAVE OUR ENVIRONMENT


WASTE, ELECTRICAL, ELECTRONIC, EQUIPMENT DIRECTIVE [WEEE}

The above Directive was brought into force in the UK by 13 August 2004. This Directive aims to reduce the waste arising from electrical and electronic equipment and improve the environmental performance of all those involved in the life cycle of electrical and electronic equipment. Produces of products placed on the market after 13 August 2005 will be responsible for financing the management of WEEE. Producers will be required to achieve a series of demanding recycling and recovery targets for different categories of appliances. Fines will be enforced if this Directive is not complied with.


PROBLEMS:

 275 MILLION PRINTER CARTRIDGES HAVE ENDED UP IN LANDFILL SITES OR BEEN INCINERATED
 EACH LASER CARTRIDGE CONTAINS OVER 1.5KG OF PLASTIC ALUMINIUM AND ASSORTED PARTS.
 IT TAKES 1.5 PINTS OF OIL TO PRODUCE A NEW CARTRIDGE
 PRINTER INK COSTS MORE THAN VINTAGE CHAMPAGNE
 THREE QUARTERS OF THE 7 MILLION TONER CARTRIDGES USED IN THE UK IN 1999 WERE BINNED
 THESE 5.25 MILLION CARTRIDGES WOULD STRETCH ACROSS THE RADIUS OF THE MOON IF LAID END TO END
 A CARTRIDGE NEEDS 1000 YEARS TO BIODEGRADE
