Councillor Geoff McMullen, Portfolio Chair for Environment & Waste said this initiative is a fantastic way to get rid of your unwanted computers and televisions.
"We all have old computers and televisions laying around the house, so this is a great opportunity to safely and consciously throw them away at your local refuse facility," Cr McMullen said.
"Make sure you take advantage of this drop zone, with both householders and small businesses encouraged to clean up their unwanted waste."
A Drop Zone area will be available until 31 August at each refuse facility in Roma, Injune and Surat.
