House Clearance Newcastle Upon Tyne reaches recycling rates of an estimated 68% on WEEE waste.
House Clearance Newcasle Upon Tyne has been researching the current state of play for WEEE recycling in the UK. There has been the rather welcome discovery of a fact that many in the recycling & Newcastle house clearance industry have known for years: almost all large household appliances, or ‘white goods’ are collected for recycling by long-established routes. Whether via the house clearance company or by local authorities, old washing-machines and cookers find their way into the shredders, where they are processed, achieving recycling rates of an estimated 68%.
The collection rate exceeds government targets, with the recycling rate only 2% below. For telecommunications scrap, the figures are even better: the collection and recycling figures from a recent survey show that collection already meets the target, while recycling rates exceed it.
Other types of equipment do not do as well, with only an estimated 10% of IT equipment collected, but the recycling rate of the IT scrap collected is as high as 90%. House Clearance companies in newcastle who dabble in IT and electronics recycling are expanding rapidly, with the industry growth rate one of the highest in the land, according to delegates at the recent house clearance business owners workshop.
This is marvellous news, but there is as ever a depressing aspect to it. One member of the industry, working for one of the most successful Newcastle house clearance companies pointed out that if his business tried to set up from scratch today, they would have enormous difficulties. Waste management licensing, Duty of Care, restrictions on international trade in recyclables, Special Waste Regulations etc.
The legislation designed to protect the environment has put a stranglehold on new business start-ups in the house clearance & recycling industry. 90% of IT scrap remains out there to be collected and diverted from landfill. If the IT recycling infrastructure is to expand without subsidy from manufacturers and extra cost to the consumer, then a solution to this problem will have to be found.
