What’s the problem with e-waste?
E-waste is electronic waste and can contain hazardous materials such as lead and mercury which can leach into waterways and cause irreparable environmental and human harm when sent to landfill .

Recycling e-waste is important
Recycling saves energy and precious natural resources like water, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat global warming. Around 95 per cent of all E-waste collected on the day will be reycled.

To help Australia keep E-waste out of landfill, the City supports a national scheme for managing electronic waste – where producers are responsible for recycling products at the end of their useful life. Get on board and join the
Total Environment Centre’s campaign

If your electronic items still function safely, you should consider donating them to charity or finding them a new home through organisations such as Oz Recycle before opting for recycling.
