Electronic waste (E-waste) Recycling

Australians generate more than 140,000 tonnes of electronic waste (e-waste) each year and much of it ends up in landfill. Some e-waste contains toxic chemicals such as lead, mercury and arsenic which is why it’s so important to dispose of electronic items correctly. E-waste can also contain precious metals that can be recycled.

Help keep e-waste out of landfill by taking advantage of our free e-waste drop off service.

Residents and small businesses can drop off e-waste to:

Resource Recovery and Waste Management Facility (RRWMF)
Woodlands Road
KATOOMBA

 

or

 

Blaxland Resource Recovery and Waste Management Facility 
Attunga Road
BLAXLAND
