Electronic waste (E-waste) recycling

Waverley Council offers a range of solutions for the community to dispose of unwanted e-waste items responsibly.

The e-waste we collect is disposed of safely and can be recycled into new materials. Televisions, computers, and other electronic appliances contain hazardous components that can affect our environment and health if sent to landfill.

Problem waste drop-off events

Council runs free problem waste drop-off events quarterly where you can bring your old electrical items. 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. Learn more and see dates for upcoming problem waste drop-off events.

Problem waste recycling stations

Mobile phones, tablets, small laptops, cords from appliances, ink cartridges and household batteries can be dropped off for free at any of our problem waste recycling stations.
