E-waste: what really happens after you drop it off

So, you drop off your unwanted power tools, vacuum cleaners and DVDs. What happens then? Follow the journey of e-waste from drop-off to reuse

It’s time to send your e-waste to a better place. Australia produces more than 650,000 tonnes of e-waste every year, which can be highly toxic if it’s not disposed of properly.

Luckily, it’s easy to keep old electronics out of landfill. The next e-waste drop-off day will be on Saturday 14 September 2019 from 9am to 3pm at the Alexandra Canal Depot, 67C Bourke Road, Alexandria.

City of Sydney residents can have their broken, obsolete and unwanted electronics collected from their home with our free pick-up service. Collection days depend on where you live and bookings are essential.
