Approved Authorised Treatment Facility
MG Waste Management is an Approved Authorised Treatment Facility (AATF). An AATF is a licensed ATF (1) (or registered exempt) site carrying out treatment on waste electrical and electronic wastes. Treatment can include de-pollution, disassembly, shredding, recovery or preparation for disposal. Any operator of a site or sites receiving WEEE direct from a designated collection facility (DCF), distributor or end-user can apply to become approved.
Only operators of approved ATFs (AATFs) can issue evidence notes for the treatment, recovery or recycling of WEEE that takes place in the UK. The evidence must relate to treatment, recovery and recycling being carried out on an approved site, or to further treatment, recovery and recycling carried out at further sites. Evidence of re-use and refurbishment of whole appliances will also count towards the recovery and recycling targets.
The evidence notes will be required by Producer Compliance Schemes on behalf of "producers" who will need to prove that a certain amount of WEEE has been treated, recovered and recycled.
Quarterly reports and independent audits have been mandated. Data which is misreported or inaccurate can lead to the suspension or cancellation of AATF status. MG Waste Management is fully compliant in this respect.
