E-waste (disposing of electrical and battery-operated items)

E-waste is any item that has a battery, cord or plug, and is at the end of its useful life.

Examples of e-waste include:

  • computers
  • TV’s
  • vacuum cleaners
  • toasters
  • powered toys
  • power tools.

E-waste is the fastest growing waste type in the world.

Reuse, donate or sell

  • First consider if you can fix your item, give it to someone else or sell it.

Hard and bundled green waste collection

  • E-waste can be included in a booked hard waste collection.
  • Please put your e-waste in one pile for collection.

E-waste contains materials that are sometimes hazardous.

The ban ensures that:

  • toxic materials are not released into the soil or waterways
  • e-waste is recycled through specialist programs, so that valuable materials can be used again. This reduces the need for new resources.
