What is 'e-waste'?
E-waste is old, unwanted or broken electronic or electrical equipment.
Does Council collect e-waste?
No, but we hold an annual e-waste drop-off every year so residents can recycle their e-waste items. All items collected will be dismantled and the components reused in new products.
Unfortunately, the drop-off event scheduled for Saturday 16 May 2020 has been cancelled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. You can still dispose of e-waste locally all year round, though. Visit Sustainability Victoria's e-waste webpage to learn how and where to do so.
