The “Support Grants and Loans Package” will help with the continuation of the UK WEEE recycling system as the sector deals with the repercussions of COVID-19. The funding has provided nearly £2 million to commercial electrical waste treatment facilities and over £500,000 in grants to organisations in the charity sector supporting reuse of electricals. Fourteen companies applied and were granted loans and 34 charities were also provided with support via grants.

The funding has originated from the WEEE Compliance Fee – an alternative form of compliance for schemes to cover their WEEE financing obligation. Material Focus structured and allocated the fund on behalf of the 2019 Compliance Fee Advisory Panel to provide support to the WEEE sector during these unprecedented times.

The 2019 Compliance Fee Advisory Panel includes the following representative organisations:  Defra, AATF Forum, ICER, LARAC, NAWDO, WEEE Schemes Forum (WSF), Reuse Network, Joint Trade Associations (JTA), and the Environmental Services Association (ESA).
