E-waste Drop-off Day

Help us keep e-waste out of landfill by recycling unwanted electronic goods at our drop-off day

Produced by the City of Sydney

Australians generate more than 140,000 tonnes of electronic waste (e-waste) each year and most of it ends up in landfill. As well as putting more pressure on limited landfill capacity, e-waste can be hazardous as it contains toxic materials.

To keep recyclable e-waste out of landfill, the City of Sydney offers free quarterly drop-off days.

What to expect

  • Our team will greet you when you pull up – we can even remove your items while you wait in your vehicle.
  • The Sydney Park area can be busy over the weekend. Arrive early to avoid traffic and follow the signs.
