Steps to Recycle Your Electronics Better

Losing Resources

Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams in Australia and when sent to landfill we lose precious resources.

Recoverable Materials

Generally around 95% of materials are recovered from e-waste to make new products.

Starting Fires

Batteries should be kept out of the kerbside recycling bins, they can contain hazardous materials and have the potential to start fires.


Extend the life of your electronics through repair and software upgrades before buying new.

Check if your broken item can be repaired or serviced.


Buy secondhand or refurbished products.

Pass it on to others by selling, swapping or donating a working device. Remember to clear your data first.
