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

  • 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
