The free service is open to all residents and small businesses looking to dispose of old computers, printers, keyboards and televisions.
Councillor Geoff McMullen, Portfolio Chair for Environment and Waste said that with electronic waste growing three times faster than any other type of waste, this service is a great opportunity for residents to recycle electronic items they no longer use.
“As e-waste contains materials that are hazardous to our environment, it is important that we work together to try and keep them out of landfill,” Cr McMullen said.
“With the items sometimes containing precious metals like copper and platinum, recycling drives such as these provide an opportunity for these materials to be reused.”
Please note - items such as mobile phones, game consoles, DVD players, stereos and appliances are not accepted.
