Part two of our ‘Why do Businesses Struggle to Comply?’ series will take a look into the administrative burden that some companies believe comes hand in hand with recycling. If this is one of the barriers preventing you from complying with the WEEE Directive, look no further – we’ve got you covered.
Paperwork can be daunting and in most cases require a full tie role to keep on top of it all, especially when it comes to recycling. In fact, paperwork can cause a whole host of problems, including time lost, expenses, space, data security issues and more.
It’s probably even more of an issue when it comes to complying with the WEEE Directive…
Businesses must keep all paperwork for four years and produce written evidence of any and all movements of waste electrical goods. On top of this, compliant companies must undertake regular audits, which is why it’s so important to choose your contractor carefully. We don’t want to make you sweat, but this can be a big ask, especially for smaller companies who don’t have the time to dedicate towards paperwork and administrative activities.
All of the above is a requirement for being compliant because the Environment Agency requires regular reports on how much electrical equipment is available on the market each year.
Again, without trying to scre you, one of our previous clients spent roughly 12 hours a month dedicated to recycling and associated paperwork – until they joined our scheme, that is.
Green Agenda takes care of all of your paperwork and waste transfer notes, assuring that you are fully compliant with the WEEE Directive. All of the important information is kept secure on your own online account and all you have to do is place your waste toner cartridges and electrical items into one of our recycling boxes and we’ll sort the rest of the process out for you.
