Star Instruments Ltd. has registered with the Environment Agency under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive. The WEEE Directive strives to develop the environmental performance of all those involved in the life-cycle of Electrical and Electronic Equipment, encouraging the responsible treatment, recovery, recycling and environmentally sound disposal of WEEE.

Ciaron Fearon, Operations Director for Star Instruments Ltd. said, “We at Star Instruments Limited believe respect for the environment is an important business responsibility. By registering as a WEEE producer, we are not only demonstrating our commitment to this belief, but also our commitment to comply with the WEEE Directive, when it applies to any product that we supply.”

WEEE makes up an estimated 1 million tonnes of the UK’s discarded waste, a figure that is increasing by 5% each year. Due to its electrical nature, some of this waste can be hazardous and toxic; therefore if it is incorrectly disposed of can pollute our air, water and soil. The WEEE Directive is a legislative act of the European Union which attempts to prevent such pollution by applying legislation and regulations on WEEE producers to ensure their actions are responsible and environmentally sound, which not only assures the public that such waste is being correctly treated, but also reduces the landfill space required through the encouragement of reuse and recycling.

The Environment Agency has provided Star Instruments Ltd. with the producer registration number; WEE/BK2634XT. Star Instruments Ltd. are registered with the Producer Compliance Scheme, Comply Direct.
