BIS reassures local authorities regarding PV panels

Posted by & filed under Other, WEEE.

At a recent meeting of the WEEE Liaison Group, the Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) re-assured local authorities that the photovoltaic sector is developing a collection infrastructure for old PV panels which would reduce any instances of PV being delivered into local authority civic amenity sites.

The PV industry, through PV CYCLE, has given a commitment to government, in return for PV panels being given their own category, that they will establish and develop a collection infrastructure separate from that operated by the existing Distributor Takeback Scheme which is focused upon local authority sites.
