WEEE Recycling


WEEE is one of the fastest growing waste streams in the developed world.  Up to recently, a lot of WEEE was thrown into the bin and disposed of in landfill.  Improved regulation of the collection, recycling and disposal of WEEE has been law at European level  and brought into Irish law since 2005. Here at Techcom we take our recycling of all Audio Visual Equipment and Batteries very serious. With a recycling potential of more than 80%, WEEE is an extraordinary source of resources: it contains not only plastics and ferrous metals, but also precious metals such as gold, silver, platinum, and rare earths such as lanthanum and neodymium, which are under strong economic pressure on a global scale. WEEE recycling is also an important source of local employment, in particular in the sheltered and supported employment sector.




WEE waste of electrical and electronic equipment – refers to any end-of-life electrical appliances: Laptops and PC’s, phones, household appliances, Screens, Sound systems, etc. As the volume of this waste is increasing massively we now have to realize it is now a major source of raw materials which can be retrieved and reused. Techcom are committed to reducing our WEEE waste foot print by complying with all EU and Irish waste compliance laws.

Customers wishing to dispose of B2C waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) when it reaches the end of its life, can do so for free of charge on a one-for-one, like for like basis by informing customer services when ordering a new product.
