Our free e-waste collection days make it easier to dispose of electronic waste (e-waste) such as computer screens, keyboards and televisions.
Although only a small fraction of total waste, according to Clean Up Australia statistics, e-waste is one of the fastest growing contributors to our waste stream. The replacement of old televisions and increased turnover of electronic devices such as mobile phones and computers are all contributing to the growth in e-waste volumes.
E-waste contains a range of materials including plastic, lead, copper, gold, platinum and rare earth metals. Ninety-eight percent of e-waste is recyclable.
In addition to using Council’s e-waste collection days, the community can already take e-waste to various collection points. Details are provided in Council’s Residents’ Handbook and Household Waste Calender.
