FAQs

What is e-waste?

The term ‘e-waste’ encompasses all old electrical appliances either in a state of disrepair or simply obsolete. E-waste recycling includes everything from fridges and microwaves to mobile phones and computers, and correct electronic waste disposal is of vital importance to being able to achieve a sustainable future.

Electronic waste, or e-waste, as everyone likes to call it, is anything that you don’t have use for that has a plug, battery, or cord. Unlike other types of rubbish, you typically cannot dispose of electrical recycling in your bin. Most items are potentially hazardous, while others still have value and certainly do not belong in a landfill. That is why it’s important to let our expert scrap metal recycling team handle this for you. 

How is e-waste recycled?

After picking up your electrical recycling items, we’ll head to our electronic waste disposal centre to process and separate the elements.

Efficient separation is the key to the success of recycling e-waste.

Usually, e-waste is shredded and metals, taking apart valuable metals and other pieces.

Magnets are often utilised to separate steel and iron, which are later prepared as recycled steel, copper, circuit boards, and aluminium.

This scrap is then sold internationally to leading e-waste recycling businesses to ensure the process is up-to-date, efficient, and environmentally-friendly.

What are the most common types?

Some of the most common electronic waste disposal products include:

  • Printers and fax machines
  • Microwaves
  • Video game consoles
  • Mobile phones and digital cameras
  • Computers, scanners, keyboards, and computer mice
  • Power tools
  • Batteries
  • Television sets, DVD players, CD Players, and radios
  • White goods
  • Printer cartridges

It is worth noting that the vast majority of the parts used to make these products are recyclable. In fact, up to 98 per cent of the components in televisions and computers can be recycled.

Why is it a problem?

E-waste poses significant environmental and health risks due to the toxic substances it contains, such as lead, mercury, and cadmium. Improper disposal can lead to toxic materials seeping into soil and water, harming ecosystems and human health. Moreover, the loss of valuable materials like gold, silver, and copper that could be recycled exacerbates resource depletion.

How can reducing e-waste benefit the environment?

Reducing e-waste helps conserve natural resources, reduces pollution, and decreases greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing new products. It also minimises the risks of environmental contamination from hazardous substances, contributing to a healthier planet.

Are there any regulations governing e-waste in Australia?

Yes, in Australia, e-waste management and recycling are governed by various state and federal regulations to ensure the responsible disposal of electronic waste and reduce its environmental impact.

The National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme (NTCRS) is a pivotal federal initiative that mandates manufacturers and importers of TVs, computers, and computer products to take responsibility for their products’ end-of-life, providing Australian residents with free recycling services for these items.

Additionally, many states and territories have specific regulations and programs aimed at managing other types of e-waste, encouraging recycling, and reducing landfill.
