GVWRRG is the link between state, local governments, community and industry and is responsible for facilitating a coordinated approach to the planning and delivery of infrastructure and services for all waste streams, municipal solid waste (MSW), commercial and industrial waste (C& I) and construction and demolition waste (C&D).
The organisation has a central office, located at Shepparton to service the Goulburn Valley waste and resource recovery region which extends from the New South Wales border through to the outer suburbs of Melbourne.
Electronic waste is growing three times faster than general municipal waste in Australia, due to increased technology trends, reduced product lifespan and consumer demand for new products.
E-waste includes anything with a battery or cord that is no longer working or wanted. Phones, TVs and computers are the most common types of e-waste but there are a wide range of items that can be found around the house or at work that are also considered e-waste.
While you can’t put your e-waste in your home rubbish or recycling bin, you can take it to one of many different locations around the state to recycle it. Visit ewaste.vic.gov.au or your local Council, to find your nearest e-waste recycling drop-off point.
