Take your e-waste to a better place

“Take your e-waste to a better place” is a new campaign from the Victorian Government to help Victorians understand the importance of recycling e-waste and therefore, reducing its impact on our environment.

E-waste includes anything with a battery or cord that is no longer working or wanted. E-waste covers a whole range of items from work, home and even the garden shed, including: Large and small household appliances; IT, telecommunication and TV equipment; lighting; electrical and electronic tools; toys; and leisure and sport equipment.

The Victorian Government has funded new e-waste facilities all over the state to make recycling our e-waste as easy as possible. Visit or contact your local council to find your nearest e-waste drop-off point.
