E-waste, what is it?
E-waste refers to any item with a plug, battery or cord that is no longer working or wanted. It covers a whole range of items from work, home and even the garden shed.
And they're actually full of valuable resources we can reuse...
What else can I do?
Recycling your e-waste is important and necessary.
But even better is to try and avoid creating e-waste in the first place.
About the e-waste program
To protect our environment and recover more precious resources, the Victorian Government is banning all e-waste from landfill from 1 July 2019.
To support the rollout of the ban the Victorian Government is investing $16.5 million to upgrade e-waste collection and storage facilities across the state and deliver an education campaign to support the ban on e-waste in landfills.
