E-Waste Drop off Day
Clear the clutter from your home with a FREE e-waste drop off day.
Why Recycle your E-Waste?
The average Australian household utilises at least 22 different electronic appliances. The lifespan of these appliances is decreasing rapidly as our thirst to update or renew our electronic gadgets grows. This appetite leaves behind a stream of e-waste that is accumulating three times faster than any other municipal waste stream.
As well as using valuable landfill space, e-waste contains hazardous materials such as lead, cadmium and mercury. Dumping e-waste into landfill allows these hazardous materials to leech into the soil and eventually our groundwater.
When you drop off your e-waste at collection points, 95% of the raw materials recovered are recycled.
