Here are a few FAQs:
What is E-waste?
E-waste is any item with a plug, cord, or battery.
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 of permitted items.
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.
Where is the E-waste going?
A local E-waste specialist (based in Mentone) will collect and recycle the items.
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.
