REPIC strengthens team
REPIC, the largest household waste electrical and electronics equipment (WEEE) producer compliance scheme in the UK, has enhanced its producer member services with the appointment of Laura Crehan, who joins the Bury-based compliance scheme in the newly created role of Account Manager. She brings with her over 17 years’ experience in the WEEE sector, having held various positions at Viridor over the past 12 years, most recently as the Unit Manager at its WEEE and Fridge Recycling facility in St Helens.
She will work with REPIC’s producer members to support them with circular economy initiatives, and also support their waste battery and WEEE collection services.
A key component of extended producer responsibility (EPR) is the circular economy, in particular keeping materials in use for as long as possible and reducing the need for primary materials, and rewarding producers who facilitate this through their product design and other initiatives.
Louise Grantham, chief executive of REPIC, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce Laura’s appointment which sees us retain her extensive technical knowledge and experience within the WEEE sector.
“Laura brings strong operational expertise and understanding of the sector which will be a great asset to our compliance service delivery. She will help us in our objective to continuously improve the services we provide to our members.”
Commenting on her new role, Laura said: “I look forward to meeting and working with our members day-to-day to provide and deliver enhanced service, support and guidance to help them navigate the future challenges in WEEE recycling. REPIC has long been at the forefront of shaping new legislation and guidance in an ever changing and complex industry. I have admired their influence, longevity and work from an AATF perspective and look forward to lending my technical industry experience to my new colleagues as a member of the team.”
