(a)is a local authority or is acting on behalf of a local authority; and

(b)has, either during the compliance period in which the request is made or in the previous compliance period, been party to an arrangement with a scheme for the collection, treatment, recovery and environmental disposal of WEEE deposited at its facilities, which has lapsed.

(2) Nothing in this regulation prevents the operator of the specified facility from contacting the operator of more than one scheme before making a request under paragraph (1).

(3) Any scheme that receives a request under paragraph (1) will arrange for collection, treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal of the WEEE that has been deposited at the specified facility.

(4) Nothing in this regulation will prevent a scheme who receives a request under paragraph (1) from entering into an arrangement with another scheme or schemes to collect the WEEE that has been deposited at the specified facility.

(5) Nothing in this regulation obliges a scheme receiving a request from a designated collection facility under paragraph (1) to comply with their obligations in that paragraph in relation to WEEE falling within a WEEE stream to which the operator of that facility has received approval to retain under regulation 53 during the compliance period in which the request under paragraph (1) is made.
