E-waste – unwanted electronic goods like computers, televisions and video recorders – 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.
Council’s e-waste collection will accept 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 is recommended to wipe data from devices beforehand.
The e-waste drop off dates for 2021 are Sunday 28 February and Sunday 29 August 2021.

For householders in Mosman your nearest Community Recycling Centre (CRC) is in Artarmon. The CRC takes a number of problem items for recycling free of charge. Items include non-commercial quantities of computers, TVs, mobile phones and batteries. The full list of items accepted, address and details relating to opening hours maybe found on the CRC website.
Why use the CRC?Most of the items accepted at the CRC can be reused or recycled. By sorting our waste and taking it to a recycling centre, we are:
- keeping potentially hazardous waste out of landfill
- helping improve recycling rates and
- saving water, energy and other valuable natural resources.
Please handle and transport your materials carefully and safely. Protect your vehicle by placing items on a protective sheet or tray in the boot to capture any leaks or breaks.
Printer Cartridges: The voluntary extended producer responsibility program called ‘Cartridges 4 Planet Ark’ is supported and funded by Australia’s leading print manufacturers. All types and brands of printer cartridges are accepted.
Council is taking action to divert textiles from landfill. In partnerships with the Circular Centre, RecycleSmart and the EPA we are offering Mosman residents a trial Circular Textile Recycling Service that also includes the pick-up of household batteries and soft plastics. Items are then taken to recycling centres for reprocessing.
To participate in the program simply do the following:
- Wash, dry and bag your textiles. Add any other items accepted for pick up (see website for further details)
- Book a pick up by visiting recyclesmart.com
- For your first pick up, we will pick up to 2 bags for FREE. Simply use code MOSMAN20 at the checkout.
