</p><p>The 2013 Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations seek
to reduce the amount of WEEE going to landfill by encouraging its separate collection
and subsequent treatment, re-use, recovery, recycling and environmentally sound disposal.</p><p>Defra
has issued statutory guidance on the best available collection, treatment, recovery
and recycling techniques (BATRRT) for WEEE at approved authorised treatment facilities.
The BATRRT guidance sets out the minimum requirements which treatment facilities must
comply with.</p><p> </p><p>The guidance can be found here: <a href="https://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20130403043343/http:/archive.defra.gov.uk/environment/waste/producer/electrical/documents/weee-batrrt-guidance.pdf"
