Australians produce more than 106,000 tonnes of electronic waste (e-waste) each year and most of it ends up in landfills, where it has the potential to contaminate soil and water. Electronic waste, such as computers and televisions also contain valuable non-renewable resources and substances that are hazardous to human health.
Marrickville Council provides four free drop-off events throughout the year where you can take your e-waste for recycling and dispose of unwanted chemicals safely.
Location: Marrickville Council Works Depot, 15-17 Unwins Bridge Road, St Peters
Entry is via Bolton Street and exit via Unwins Bridge Road as it is a left-hand turn only.
Do not leave chemicals and e-waste items outside the gate before or after opening hours.
If you are unable to attend on the day, please hold onto your items – our next event will be here in no time at all! – or visit the NSW Environmental Protection Authority website for other chemical cleanout event dates and locations around Sydney.
For other drop off points for televisions and computers, visit http://recyclingnearyou.com.au/computers/MarrickvilleNSW.
All brands are accepted. Bring along your electronic item from the home office, entertainment area, kitchen and shed. We also accept electronic toys and gadgets.
Do you have a working item that you no longer want? Someone else might.
Let's work together and rethink waste.
