E-waste refers to any item with a plug, battery or cord that is no longer working or wanted.
If you need to dispose of an item, please don’t put it in your kerbside bins. It is now illegal in Victoria to dispose of e-waste in landfill.
There are several drop-off points throughout Indigo Shire for free e-waste and battery recycling:
E-waste is growing three times faster than the rate of other types of municipal waste, and these items contain many potentially hazardous materials that will now be diverted from landfill.
Please note: household items, toys, leisure and sporting equipment should be taken to your local transfer station
E-waste will will not end up in landfill. It will be collected and taken apart so that valuable components can be retrieved and hazardous materials removed.
Although e-waste is technically recycled, please don’t put it in your yellow recycling bin – it can’t be processed with the other recyclables.
