Becoming a WEEE certified school?
Here's an interesting one which maybe someone else has come across...
Have been offered 80 + desktops from a school that I have close links with (ie my wife is a teacher there and that was my previous employer!) However as its an independent school (with a business "ethos") they require us (an LA school) to have a WEEE certificate in place so that they can hand them over for a minimal fee
Whilst its not amazing kit (Pentium D @ 3ghz) it would certainly help me replace kit that seems to have been in place since the start of the millennium!
Looking at the Environmental Agency sites and Government related pages, i can only really find information about becoming a WEEE certified "treatment" centre. I guess loosely, thats what we would be but theres references to site visits to check the storage of equipment etc and at the end of the day, there is going to be an annual fee depending on the amount of "waste" that gets recycled
Could this potentially mean that schools will no longer be able to pass old kit to feeder schools etc?
(Kind of duplicating a question posed by JAMMAN960 in a previous thread, so not unique in my questionning!)
