More Investment needed in to WEEE Waste Sector

A report has been released which claims that more investment is needed in the WEEE Waste sector if the UK is to hit waste targets which it is continuously missing.

In the recently released WEEE collection statistics for the second quarter of 2018, it shows that the tonnage of WEEE collected between April and June this year is still behind the target.

The same report also shows that the amount collected in the quarter was also 3,056 tonnes down from the same quarter in 2017. This has led to some in the industry commenting that they wonder if targets will ever be met.

Recent years have seen positives in the industry, however, speaking about the report, Mr Hunt of Wastecare said that investment is needed to look at the regulation further to ensure we continue to climb the country rankings, where currently sit eighth.
