E-WASTE RECYCLING

Did you know?

E-waste is any electronic product coming to the end of its use/life. It includes any device with a power cord or battery, which contain potentially hazardous and valuable materials that don't belong in landfill. 

 

In July 2019, the Victorian Government introduced a ban on the disposal of e-waste into landfill. This includes the following:

  • Entertainment devices: including TVs, movie players, tuners, video game consoles, Hi-Fi systems and speakers.

  • Office devices: including computer hard drives, screens, keyboards and mouse, photocopies, scanners, telephones, servers and data cables / cords.

  • Mobile phones, along with charging devices & cords.

  • Household items: including fridges, freezers, microwaves, toasters, washing machines, dishwashers, coffee machines, bread makers and pressure cookers.

  • Lighting: including desk lamps and flood lights.

  • Power Tools: including drills, grinders and welders.

  • Leisure devices: including electronic toys and fitness machines.
