Acorn Waste Management provides a seamless solution for commercial clients across the UK.

In 2003 an EU directive was adopted to reduce the amount of electrical waste and electronic products being disposed of in landfill. The directive requires the business consumer to ensure separation of all WEEE products before they are collected and recycled by a licensed organisation that complies with UK waste laws.

The business user has a ‘Duty of Care’ which essentially means ensuring that your WEEE product is stored and leaves your premises with an organisation that complies with UK waste laws.
