Part three of our ‘Why Do Businesses Struggle to Comply?’ is here, and this time we’re looking at why the WEEE Directive makes compliance so difficult in terms of resources.
Following up from part two of this series, on top of the administrative struggle in terms of the amount of paperwork, you would also require an individual to complete all of the paperwork which would include producing, filing, securing, and maintaining all documents and waste transfer notes.
Can you spare an employee to deal with everything covered in the WEEE regulations? Do you know everything covered in the WEEE regulations? This would first require training and then the recruitment of a new member of staff or extending hours of current staff – all of which will come at a financial cost.
Carrying out your own recycling also causes other issues in terms of resources. Alongside the staff issue, do you have space to store all of the waste electrical products that you’ll need to take back once your clients have replaced it? If you’re here as a user of toner cartridges – they take up a lot of room once they become waste, we know from over a decade of experience collecting waste toner cartridges!
The harsh truth is, the majority of businesses won’t have the resources to cope with the pressures that compliance brings, however, Green Agenda do.

Everything is sorted for you without hassle, you simply have to let us know when your collection box is full and we’ll send you another one.
