There’s a better place for e-waste than your rubbish bin. It’s much better going to a place where we can recover the precious materials to be reused and capture the nasty bits before they can do harm.
E-waste refers to any item with a plug, battery or cord that is no longer working or wanted. It covers a whole range of items from work, home and even the garden shed.
And they're actually full of valuable resources we can reuse...
To protect our environment and recover more precious resources, the Victorian Government is banning all e-waste from landfill from 1 July 2019.
To support the rollout of the ban the Victorian Government is investing $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.
