The British Retail Consortium (BRC) recently proposed a new distributor take-back scheme (DTS). The DTS has been operated on behalf of the BRC for 12 years by Valpak Retail WEEE Services but will end on December 31. Retailers have provided over £13 million through the scheme to raise the collection and recycling of electrical and electronic equipment waste (WEEE).

A new DTS is vital if the United Kingdom is to continue delivering one of the highest collection rates for WEEE in Europe, Peter Andrews, head of sustainability at BRC, said in a statement.

“Now that the general election is over and the new Government is in place, the BRC calls on the secretary of state for the environment to ensure the DTS is able to continue to support WEEE collection in the UK. The government must ensure sustainable progress in the retail industry continues to accelerate,” he said.

“A new DTS is needed to maintain the recycling momentum until the Government reviews the regulations in two years. The DTS will provide key information to help decision makers when reviewing the WEEE regulations,” he added.
