Electronic waste (e-waste)

What is e-waste

It’s crucial to dispose of electronic waste (e-waste) carefully so valuable resources (components made of plastics, glass, copper wire, and other metals) can be recovered.

Recycling e-waste entails numerous environmental benefits, including minimising landfill, reusing resources, and reducing energy and water use.   

E-waste encompasses a broad range of items, including:

  • Batteries (these also classify as Household Hazardous Waste)
  • Computers and accessories, including printers, keyboards, scanners, and mice
  • Cameras
  • Game consoles
  • Mobile phones
  • Televisions, including DVD/CD players and set-top boxes
  • Printer cartridges
  • Power tools
  • Radios
  • White goods.

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)

What is household hazardous waste?

HHW includes any unwanted products that are corrosive, flammable, toxic or reactive. This type of waste may contain chemicals harmful to humans and the environment. HHW must not be placed in your residential bins because it is dangerous. It can injure our workers and cause fires in our facilities or trucks.

Household hazardous waste disposal

Household quantities of these items can be safely disposed of or recycled at the Davis Road Recycling and Waste Management Facility (fees & charges may apply).

Only waste oil, vehicle batteries, paint, metal and plastic chemical DrumMuster containers are accepted under our licence at Davis Road. 

All other HHW items must be taken to the Bunbury Harvey Regional Council in Australind. Alternatively, keep an eye out for one of our HHW Drop Off Days.
