Ecycle Solutions provides the public with free recycling drop-off points for TVs, computers, computer accessories, and printers. Find out more.
In 2011 the Australian Government introduced a national, industry funded, recycling scheme for televisions, computers and computer accessories. The scheme prevents millions of old or broken TVs and computers from being sent to landfill by providing the community with recycling services, free of charge. There are even some free services for businesses with larger quantities to recycle.
ABOUT THE SCHEME
Electrical products generally accepted under the scheme include TVs, computers, monitors, laptops, printers, scanners, hard drives, motherboards, fax machines, webcams, keyboards, computer mice, and cables. However, accepted products may differ depending on the recycler, so it is advisable to check beforehand (either directly or by searching the directory below and selecting the business for details).
Five organisations are currently approved to deliver recycling services under the scheme. For more information on these organisations, including the types of products they accept for recycling, visit their websites:
- Ecycle Solutions
- Ecocycle Pty Ltd
- Sustainable Product Stewards Pty Ltd
- The Activ Group Solutions Pty Ltd (Ecoactiv)
How do I access these services?
Industry arrangements, approved by the Australian Government, are responsible for establishing recycling drop-off points around Australia, with the aim of providing access to recycling services in metropolitan, regional and remote areas.
