Companies Could be Forced to Recycle Old Mobile Phones and Electrical Equipment

Published by Stephen Roper on Tagged Politics

UK companies could soon be forced by the government to recycle all their old mobile phones and other electrical equipment.

The proposal was made by Lord Henley early last week for the government to help businesses with recycling of mobile phones and other equipment. Spokesman for Waste Watch, Mike Webster said this could be a very effective way of improving Britain’s green record.

The new proposal hasn’t gone down well with the Federation of Small Businesses who waned that many small companies would need loans or cash grants in order to be in a position to recycle.

The new scheme is thought to initially be a voluntary one that companies can sign up to at their discretion.
