Free e-waste drop off dayPosted Monday 24 February 2020
Mosman Council is holding its free biannual e-waste collection this weekend.
E-waste contains finite resources such as gold, copper and silver, as well as materials that can be environmentally toxic if they end up in landfill, such as lead and mercury.
Recycling e-waste means that these materials can instead be recovered and recycled into new products.
The collection will take computers, laptops, monitors, TVs, DVD/CD/VHS media and players, printers, small electrical appliances, mobile phones, game consoles, microwaves, light bulbs, and computer peripherals. For security, it’s recommended to wipe data from devices beforehand.
Drop off is at the Civic Centre carpark, The Crescent, Mosman, 9am-4pm, Sunday 1 March.
