Australians love technology and are amongst the largest users in the world, buying more than 4 million computers and 3 million TVs a year. When recycled, e-waste is dismantled and precious materials including glass, plastics and metals can be extracted for re-use. Some electronic items contain hazardous materials including lead, mercury and cadmium that needs specialist handling. By diverting e-waste from landfill, you’re saving the environment, energy in mining and manufacturing, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting our air and waterways from harmful materials.
