Electronic waste can no longer be accepted at Council's Waste Management Depot at Thornleigh.
E-waste can be dropped off at the following locations:
- Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre, Ingleside (visit www.kimbriki.com.au/ for all details)
- Ryde Resource Recovery Facility, Ryde (visit www.dropzone.org.au for all details)
- Seven Hills Resource Recovery Facility, Seven Hills (visit www.dropzone.org.au for all details)
For other drop-off locations, see the Australian Government's National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme
The National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme will provide Australian householders and small business with access to free recycling services for televisions and computers, printers and computer products (such as keyboards, mice and hard drives) regardless of their brand and age. The Scheme does not cover other e-waste products.
In its early years the Scheme will build on, rather than replace, existing waste management and recycling activities. However, over time it is likely the Scheme will replace existing recycling services which will reduce costs for local government and, through them, the community.
The Scheme will boost the recycling rate for television and computer products in Australia from an estimated 17 per cent in 2010 to 30 per cent in 2012-13 and 80 per cent by 2021-22. The Scheme will be funded and run by the television and computer industry, and regulated by the Australian Government under the Product Stewardship Act 2011 and the Product Stewardship (Televisions and Computers) Regulations 2011.
