Working with Local Authorities

ERP UK works with many Local Authorities across the UK, some since the inception of the WEEE Regulations in 2007.  We develop partnerships and our Regional Account Managers work closely with the Councils and Household Recycling Centre staff to ensure that their WEEE and Waste Portable Batteries are collected, recycled, and reported on time.  This includes the provision of appropriate containers, segregation guides, training, and an ERP point of contact.

We vet our supply chain on a continuous basis, ensuring compliance with all national and international regulations.  ERP uses local suppliers wherever possible, to reduce the carbon footprint of collections and support the local economy.
