Managing end-of-life e-cigarettes

Since 2012 the number of people using e-cigarettes in the UK has tripled. As a result of this rise in popularity there is a challenge to ensure e-cigarettes do not become a problem waste stream when they reach the end of their useful lives.

E-cigarettes are made up of several components which make the handling and recycling of them very difficult. Regardless of this your business has a legal duty of care to ensure that these items are disposed of without harming the environment.

We are hosting a webinar on Tuesday 5 June at 10am where we will be discussing how best to manage the safe storage, collection and disposal of e-cigarettes. Please click here to sign up.


We have also produced an e-guide which contains information and advice about managing end-of-life e-cigarettes and how to meet your duty of care requirements. It provides details of how we can help you manage the collection, treatment and recycling of them using our fully compliant service.
