Strong turnout for e-waste

Posted Monday 06 August 2018

Almost 800 people dropped off their e-waste for recycling at Mosman Council’s free e-waste drop off day on Sunday 5 August.

Mosman residents contributed a range of e-waste including computers, laptops, TVs, DVD/CD players and mobile phones with more than 90% of material being diverted from landfill.

e-waste contains many finite resources such as gold, copper and silver and some materials are toxic to the environment, containing high levels of lead and mercury.

The next e-waste collection will be held in 2019.
