What

E-waste – or electronic waste – refers to electronic products that are no longer working or wanted, including Computers, Mobile Phones, Tablets, Monitors, Printers, TVs etc.

Why

E-waste contains hazardous materials, which can harm the environment and human health. E-waste is growing at triple the rate of general waste due to many factors, including technology trends, reduced product lifespan and consumer demands. When sent to landfill, the opportunity to recycle these goods is lost.

  • Reduce landfill
  • Protect air and waterways from harmful materials
  • Minimise the consumption of raw materials to produce electronic products
  • Reduce greenhouse gases created in the production of new materials

How

Not all electronic products are beyond economical repair. Our process inspects the product and assesses whether there is a likelyhood of a successful repair to repurpose equipment back into circulation. Where the device is beyond economical repair or end-of-life, we process our e-waste in the following manner:

  • Mobile Phones and Tablets – batteries removed, printed circuit boards removed, plastics metals and glass separated into separate bins. Batteries are sent to Battery World for recycling. Plastics, metals and glass sent to the Melville City Council recycling depot. The LCD’s are separated and sent to a recycling partner.
