Friday, 27th May 2022

As part of the Club’s increased efforts on environmental and sustainability management, we are hosting an E-waste disposal day for your small e-waste items to raise awareness to recycle and minimise the amount of this waste going to landfill.   

Date: Sunday 19 June

Time: 9am to 5pm.

Drop Off Location: Club’s training auditorium on the ground floor under the carpark

Here are a few FAQs:

  1. What is E-waste? E-waste is any item with a plug, cord, or battery.
  2. What can I bring? Any small E-waste item that could fit inside your bin at home. Please no white goods (e.g., No washing machines, dishwashers, freezers etc). Refer to the list below of permitted items.
  3. Why is SYC doing this? To provide an opportunity for members to ensure E-waste is disposed of properly and that any precious metals contained therein are re-used. We will also provide information on the day of where to take your E-waste going forward using the facilities available from your local council (Bayside, Kingston, Port Phillip).
  4. Where is the E-waste going? A local E-waste specialist (based in Mentone) will collect and recycle the items.
  5. Why does E-waste need to be treated differently? E-waste is banned from your General waste or Recycling bin at home. It is important to reclaim and recycle the precious materials from E-waste, to help reduce the need to mine them from the Earth.
