WEEE Management FAQ

What is an Electrical and Electronic Device (EEA)?

They are all devices that to function properly need electric current or electromagnetic fields, and the devices necessary to generate, transmit and measure such currents and fields, which are intended to be used with a rated voltage not more than 1,000 volts in alternating current and 1,500 volts in direct current.

What are WEEE?

They are all appliances that run on electricity (which are plugged into the current and/or run on batteries) that end their lifespan or become waste. All the components that make up them are also part of this waste.

What types of WEEE should be recycled?

  • Temperature exchange devices: air conditioning, refrigerators, freezers, vending machines, oil radiators, dehumidifiers, etc.

Why is it important to recycle WEEE?

WEEE is highly polluting waste for the environment, as they contain very hazardous materials. Your treatment should always be carried out in a plant authorized to do so in an appropriate and safe manner.

Are companies required to treat WEEE?

All entities generate waste during the execution of their activity being, many of them, unaware of their obligations as waste producers. These obligations are mainly contained in the sectoral implementing regulations: Law 22/2011, on contaminated waste and soils and Royal Decree 553/2020, on the transfer of waste within the territory of the State, without prejudice to the provisions of the regulations governing each waste stream.

Why should you go to a WEEE manager with a treatment plant like ACS Recycling?

Companies are required to declare the waste they generate and to correctly document the traceability of their management. Performing these operations with an authorized manager with a WEEE treatment plant offers endless benefits such as cost savings, eliminating intermediaries and knowing the final destination of your waste.

A manager with its own functional and authorized treatment plant, such as ACS Recycling, guarantees the collection of waste, the absolute confidentiality of the data and the correct destruction of WEEE; all this complying with all regulations to ensure management and treatment.
