The WEEE Directive came into force on 1st July 2007. To comply with the Directive, every producer must belong to a waste collection and handling scheme which in turn must pay the various Government scheme costs and make provision for handling and recycling all historic and future WEEE placed on the UK market.
To meet our legal obligations, Emergency Lighting Products Limited has joined the Lumicom scheme which specialises in handling lighting WEEE. We have also committed to using lamps supplied by manufacturers who are members of Recolight (a scheme set up for handling waste lamps).
