TechCollect E-waste Scheme

E-waste is now being accepted at Barretta Waste Management Facility under the TechCollect Program, which is a free national recycling service for computers, accessories and televisions.

The following items are accepted:

- Personal and laptop computers, including cables

- Tablets, notebooks and palmtops

- Computer monitors and parts (e.g. internal hard drives and CD drives)

- Computer peripherals and accessories (e.g. mice, keyboards, web cameras, USB's and modems)

- Printers, faxes, scanners and multi-functional devices

- All televisions

Items which have re-sale potential will be refurbished and sold, with all other devices recycled and dismantled into their components.  Over 95% of plastics, metals and glass are recovered and recycled through this process.

The e-waste collection point can be found at the sawtooth recycling area.
