AMDEA are delighted that the Joint Trade Association (JTA), of which AMDEA are an active member and sit on the JTAC Board have yet again been awarded the bid to run the WEEE Compliance Scheme.
Susanne Baker, chair of the JTA, and associate director for climate, environment, and sustainability at techUK, said:
“We welcome today’s news that the JTA has once again been successful in its proposal to operate the WEEE Compliance Fee. 2020 was clearly an extremely challenging year for the sector, and we think the mechanism correctly reflects that by ensuring the costs of collecting and treating WEEE are fairly and equitably shared amongst producers, regardless of what scheme they are in, whilst always retaining the incentive to collect all WEEE arising. More than ever, 2020 illustrated the benefits of having the flexibility a Compliance Fee can bring within the WEEE regulatory system.”
AMDEA actively represents our members in achieving higher levels of collection of end of life electrical and higher levels of recycling and precious material recovery. To find out more get in touch.
