Do you know where your unwanted IT equipment ends up?


Crown Court date set for major e-waste export case – January 2011

Eight men charged by the Environment Agency as part of its largest ever investigation into alleged illegal exports of WEEE from the UK to Nigeria have been committed to stand trial in March 2011.

The charges have been brought by the Environment Agency under the Transfrontier Shipment of Waste Regulations 2007 and European Waste Shipment Regulations 2006.
The Agency has said with reference to the case: “The law is clear that broken electricals, including everyday items such as mobiles, smart phones, laptops and TVs, cannot be sent overseas for disposal. As well as precious metals such as gold, copper and aluminium, electrical waste can contain hazardous substances including mercury and lead that are harmful to people and the environment.”
