Electronic waste (E-waste) recycling

Waverley council offers several options for responsible disposal of electronic waste (e-waste), including permanent drop off points and twice yearly drop off events. 

The e-waste we collect is disposed of safely, and can be recycled into new materials. E-waste, including televisions, computers, and other electronic appliances contain hazardous components that can affect our environment and health if sent to landfill. We don't accept these items in our household clean-up service or kerbside bins.

Problem waste recycling stations

Waverley residents can drop off small problem wastes for recycling at Waverley Library and the Customer Service Centre.

Accepted items:

  • Mobile phones
  • Tablets
  • Laptops
  • Ink cartridges
  • Household batteries

E-waste drop-off events

Please note, due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, we have no upcoming drop off events currently scheduled.

Council runs free, local e-waste drop off events twice per year. You don't even need to get out of the car; our friendly staff will do the lifting for you. Council collects approximately 50 tonnes of e-waste each year at these events.

You can drop off:

  • Computer monitors, hard drives, printers, laptops, network equipment, scanners, cords, cables
  • Televisions
  • DVD players, video recorders, projectors
  • Mobile phones, landline phones, faxes
  • MP3 players, speakers, cameras
  • Toasters, kettles, microwaves and other small household appliances
  • Heaters
  • Household batteries

Please note, we cannot accept white goods, oil heaters or smoke detectors.

The Reconnect Project is a not-profit organisation that accepts mobile phones and tablets, in any age or condition. Data is erased securely, then mobiles are repaired for reuse. The project works with caseworkers at women's refuges, refugee support agencies, homelessness outreach centres and distributes them to people who don't have access to mobile devices.
