Approved by the
Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs
Phase 5 Remaining Open For Registrations
Phase 5 of the scheme runs from 1st January 2020 until
31st December 2021.
The funds raised in Phase 5 will continue to be used to support
Local Authority projects with the aim to increase WEEE collections and
there will be a process in place to monitor the benefits achieved throughout the phase.
Important Note: Phase 5 will only allow larger retailers in Band A & B
which have physical retail stores to join the DTS for a maximum of 1 year.
Band C members and larger online / distance seller retailers
can join for 2 years.
Office of Product Safety & Standards
have confirmed that the grace period will be extended to 30th June 2020
during which retailers will not be expected to start in-store take-back of WEEE to
allow for signing up to the new phase of the DTS and recovery from Covid-19 related issues.
At present there are no changes to the length of DTS memberships,
however this will be kept under review by DEFRA and the OPS&S during
the current disruption and any change will be communicated as soon as we can.
