ICT (or e-Waste) at your institution, an EAUC Insight Guide, provides useful information on e-waste, covering a number of areas such as regulations, storing, recycling and disposal.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2006, an EAUC Insight Guide, describes the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations. These regulations make producers of electrical and electronic equipment responsible for the financing of the recovery and recycling of such equipment at their end of life. However, in certain circumstances, they have also placed responsibility on end-users of WEEE effective from 1 July 2007 and this has implications on the disposal of electrical and electronic waste by institutions. Moreover, the WEEE regulations raise issues concerning contract negotiations for the supply of new electrical and electronic equipment, especially on the financial responsibility of recovery and recycling of such equipment at the end of their life.
