weee image

The Government announced in the last Budget Speech that the eco-contribution system with regards to Electric and Electronic Equipment is to be reviewed with the aim of removing it for producers who either join a WEEE Compliance Scheme or establish their own systems for recycling.


During GreenPak’ s  2015 AGM held on 5th May,  a motion was unanimously passed stating that GreenPak Coop should take up at its earliest the compliance of WEEE, on the proviso that the final published regulations will be in line with GreenPak’s position. The position paper can be downloaded from here
