Defra to Consider Impact of COVID-19 Outbreak on Collection Targets

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is rewriting the nature of the global society. According to the data published by the Environment Agency, U.K., collection targets for WEEE (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) were missed in the second quarter of 2020. This means that companies in the U.K. WEEE waste recycling market need to pay a compliance fee, as collection targets were missed. Companies are adhering to the guidelines set by the Defra (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs), the U.K., to abide by the compliance fee methodologies.

Companies in the U.K. WEEE waste recycling market have registered a drastic fall in the collection of household appliances compared to provisional figures published in 2019. Hence, Defra is increasing efforts to draw possible leniency in compliance fee methodologies to minimize the pressure put on recycling companies.
