Australian New Zealand Recycling Platform has set out to revolutionise Victoria’s waste recovery movement by building a mobile e-waste recycling factory. Part-funded by Sustainability Victoria, the Australian-first factory was commissioned in March 2021 and, with support from Citywide Services, was first deployed at the City of Melbourne’s waste transfer station to undergo rigorous testing and evaluation.

The mobile e-waste recycling factory provides an environmentally sound solution for collection partners, councils and operators under the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme by diverting more than 90 per cent of collected items from landfill
