Waste and resource recovery

E-waste

What is e-waste?

E-waste is electronic waste, or any item with a plug, battery or power cord that is no longer working or wanted. It covers a whole range of items from phones and refrigerators to fluorescent light tubes.

E-waste ban

To help protect our environment and recover more precious resources, the Victorian Government banned all e-waste from going to landfill as of 1 July 2019. That means, e-waste can't go in any bin.

E-waste is growing three times faster than the rate of standard municipal waste. It contains many potentially hazardous and valuable materials, which don't belong in landfill

What to do with e-waste

To dispose of e-waste correctly, please take these items to your local resource recovery centre.
