The Victorian e-waste ban

← Back to e-waste homepage

To protect our environment and recover more precious resources, the Victorian Government banned all e-waste from entering landfill from 1 July 2019.

To support the rollout of the ban, the Victorian Government invested $16.5 million to upgrade e-waste collection and storage facilities across the state and deliver an education campaign to support the ban on e-waste in landfills.

$15 million was allocated to design and implement an e-waste infrastructure support program to upgrade Victoria's e-waste collection network, increasing community access to e-waste drop-off points and expanding capacity to receive and safely manage rising volumes of e-waste.

Sustainability Victoria supports Victorians to be more sustainable in their everyday life: in our homes and our jobs, in our schools and communities, and in the systems and infrastructure that support a thriving Victorian economy and lifestyle.

To find out more about where you can dispose of your e-waste, use our e-waste drop-off point locator Alternatively, contact your local council or find out where you can dispose of e-waste in your local area.
