E-waste drop-off day

Help us keep e-waste out of landfill by recycling unwanted electronic goods

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, or come by bike, to avoid traffic and follow the signs. Access via Barwon Park Road from the Princes Highway.

What can you bring?

  • Televisions.
  • Computers – desktops, monitors, laptops and printers.
  • Home and home office equipment – photocopiers, fax machines, scanners, servers, projectors, DVD players and video recorders.
  • Computer peripherals such as joysticks.
  • Electronic games, CDs, DVDs, tapes and cameras.
  • Electronic components.
  • Phones – mobiles and landlines.
  • Small kitchen appliances.
  • Power tools – drills, circular saws and power boards, electric lawnmowers, electric trimmers, electric leaf blowers (and no gas-powered items, please).

Items we can’t accept

  • White goods.
  • Hazardous waste – chemicals, paints and pesticides.
  • Car batteries.
  • Smoke alarms and fire extinguishers.

Household batteries, fluorescent tubes and energy saving light globes (CFLs) can be dropped off at our libraries and Neighbourhood Service Centres at any time.
