Christian Salvesen moves into WEEE collection

Christian Salvesen and Midex Reverse Technologies are working together to offer UK businesses an end of life electronics collection and reprocessing service to meet the provisions of the new EU legislation on the waste electrical and electronic equipment directive [WEEE] and Restriction of Hazardous Substances [RoHS] landfill.

Midex offers an solution to UK wide business clients to dispose of unwanted, redundant or dead electronics of all descriptions. Clients can seek guidance on the recently updated web site Everything is explained in what can be a complex area of legislation, including the duty of care, and what is hazardous waste.

The WEEE goods will be packaged and listed for collection by Salvesen network vehicles and trunked to the nearest reprocessing facility for strip down, repair, reuse or grinding and separation into component materials that can be recycled.

Salvesen is already working with major retailers on the WEEE Directive via its returns centres. It handles recycling and runs RSU’s for Tesco and Asda via the Support Services Division.

David Hughes, Christian Salvesen development director, said: “We have the relationships, the experience and the credibility to extend service reach into the waste recovery and recycling arena, especially WEEE. We have an efficient shared user UK wide transport network infrastructure with the requisite waste handling licenses and our UK fleet of 550 drivers is ADR accredited for hazardous transport. Ultimately, we want to be the transporters of choice for WEEE in the UK, working for both the compliance schemes and reprocessors like Midex.”
