The forum for manufacturers and importers of electronic equipment to consider issues relating to how products and packaging is dealt with at the end of its life.
The Waste and Resource Group (WRG) is the forum for the techUK members placing goods on the market and responsible for the recycling and disposal at end of life.
Currently the WRG is looking at the future of Extended Producer Responsibility schemes in the UK, helping Defra with the upcoming Resources and Waste Strategy, implementation of the EU Circular Economy Package and helping members comply with the WEEE, Packaging and Batteries Directives. The group helps Defra set targets for collections and advocates measures that support an effective UK WEEE System.
The group also hears from the recycling, waste management and Producer Compliance Scheme communities and feeds into the techUK chaired Joint Trade Association for producers of electrical and electronic equipment.
The group is open to any member placing physical goods on the market.
