From 1 July 2019, electronic waste (e-waste) will be banned from landfills. E-waste includes any item with a plug, battery or cord that is no longer working or wanted.

Mobile phones, small electrical appliances and their cords, light globes, batteries, DVDs and x-rays can now be dropped off at recycling collection stations at Bentleigh, Carnegie, Caulfield and Elsternwick Libraries.

Once they are taken away, reusable parts are salvaged and the rest is disposed of safely.

Larger electronic equipment items such as televisions, whitegoods and printers can be disposed of through our hard rubbish collection service. To book a collection, contact Council’s Service Centre on 9524 3333.

There are also a range of other options for recycling or donating unwanted electrical items through other organisations and recycling centres. For further information, visit www.gleneira.vic.gov.au/recycling-az
