Reuse and take-back

Before completing your WEEE collection request form, have you considered sharing any working items on WARPit, our free online tool for swapping items between departments? Or if it's usable but can't be redistributed internally, have you considered using UniGreenScheme?

Where old equipment is being replaced by new items, it would be advisable to check that the supplier does not offer a take-back scheme for old equipment, before arranging disposal by this route.

Arranging a collection of WEEE

A collection service for all electrical/electronic waste at the University is available, including data-bearing items such as computers and hard drives. This is free to University departments and institutions as the University meets collection and disposal costs. The service is not available to Colleges.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) should be:

  • stored securely and separately from other waste
  • passed to the University’s approved contractor only
