European Recycling Platform (ERP)
Established in 2002, the European Recycling Platform (ERP) is the first pan-European organization to implement the European Union’s electrical and electronic waste recycling regulations (WEEE Directive)
Their mission is to develop high-quality, cost-effective recycling services for the benefit of producer members, consumers, and ultimately the environment and society.
ERP UK is one of the largest WEEE, battery and packaging compliance programs in the UK. They work with more than 100 electronics manufacturers to collect and dispose of WEEE, waste batteries and packaging on their behalf.
ERP UK also recycles waste electronic products and batteries from more than 400 sites of more than 50 local authorities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. They work closely with local authority partners to support and implement a wide range of initiatives to increase WEEE and battery recycling. Since 2007, ERP has reused and recycled more than 400,000 tons of WEEE and waste batteries in the UK.
