Electronic waste recycling
E-waste is another name for electronic products that are unwanted, not working, obsolete or have reached the end of their useful life.
These products contain valuable materials and parts that are able to be recycled and used over and over. Televisions, computers and other e-waste products contain non-renewable resources like tin, nickel, zinc, aluminium and copper which can't be used again if they’re sent to landfill.
Recycle your computers and TVs
The City of Stonnington provides free e-waste recycling during opening hours at its Waste Transfer Station. This service is available to households and small businesses through the Federal Government's TV and Computer Recycling Scheme.
