Australians generate more than 650,000 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.
