E-waste to landfill ban
Take your e-waste to a better place
E-waste is anything with a plug, battery or cord that is unwanted. It could be any of a whole range of items from work, home or even the garden shed. From old phones, computers and household appliances to power tools and toys.
E-waste is full of valuable resources we can reuse, as well as some nasty materials that are bad for the environment. Rather than putting it in the bin and sending it to landfill, we should take it to a better place where we can remove the bad and save the good.
