E-Waste Disposal Next Sunday

Sunday 11 September is your next opportunity to drop off unwanted TVs, computers, printers, electronic games, batteries and other E-waste at the Bay Street Depot, Ultimo.

Since launching the E-waste service in November 2008, the City of Sydney has:

  • held 11 E-waste drop off days;
  • accepted around 3,470 resident drop-offs;
  • collected and recycled 118 tonnes ( that's 118,000kg) of electronic waste that would otherwise have gone to land fill; and
  • recycled 99 per cent of what we collected.

We are looking at expanding the City's e-waste recycling programs including setting up permanent e-waste collection stations in prominent locations around the City.

Australians generate over 140,000 tonnes of electronic waste each year. E-waste contains toxic materials and can be hazardous if not disposed off correctly. The good news is that when disposed of correctly, most of it can be recycled.
