Commercial Waste Recycling Company Ecolamp Ltd issued a warning to UK businesses to make sure they’re aware of their responsibilities in the disposal of lamps, bulbs and electrical equipment.
The failure of any UK business to comply with The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations or WEEE regulations which came into force in 2007 means large fines and potentially serious environmental consequences.
Warrington based Ecolamp Limited warn that some UK businesses may still be leaving themselves open to risk simply through ignorance of the regulations, their responsibilities under those regulations, and of the ease of eliminating those risks by enlisting the help of specialist hazardous waste bulb and lamp recycling company.
“It’s important that businesses are aware that it’s illegal for them to use skips or and landfill sites to dispose of old fluorescent lamps, high intensity discharge (HID) lamps, linear and CFLs or compact tube lights. What’s more you need to obtain a Waste Transfer Note prove to your Local Authority that you disposed of your bulbs and lamps in the right way. We don’t want to see businesses being fined tens of thousands per lamp!” says Ecolamp’s Managing Director Mike Solan.
Ecolamp also expressed concern at the potential risks of businesses not being aware of the regulations regarding the treatment, recycling and disposal of electrical equipment.
“This is another potentially risky area for UK businesses who are not aware that the law covers whether the business or what’s know as the ‘producer’ of electrical equipment that the business uses is responsible for the collection, treatment and recycling of it at the end of it’s life. We’ve put a downloadable ‘FREE WEEE Fact Sheet’ on the home page of http://www.ecolamp.co.uk/ to help” says Mike.
Ecolamp stress that they can handle all aspects of collection, storage, treatment, recycling, disposal and correct WEEE regulations compliance on behalf of any organisation that needs to dispose of and recycle waste bulbs or lamps such as old fluorescent tubes, whether on a one-off or regular basis.
Ecolamp offer a simple to understand pricing structure based on a price for a lamp storage unit, and the price of collecting and recycling the contents. Ecolamp issue all necessary documentation and Waste Recycling Certificates.
