Drop Zone free drop-off for e-waste

Friday, 10 May, 2013 | Supplied by: SUEZ

SITA Australia has partnered with the Supply Chain arm of DHL in Australia to reduce the amount of television and computer waste going to landfill and increase the recovery of resources. The program also aims to provide greater recycling options and a free-of-charge solution for the community.

With eight SITA sites part of the program in NSW, SITA will look at providing the service in other areas around Australia. Currently drop-off points are located at Belrose, Chullora, Eastern Creek, Wetherill Park, Lucas Heights, Ryde, Seven Hills and Spring Farm.

The e-waste drop-off points accept a large range of items for recycling, including televisions, computers, laptops, printers and scanners. The items are dismantled and recyclable items such as gold, platinum, silver, copper, aluminium, steel, iron, glass and plastic are recovered. The recovered materials are used for the processing of new products.

The National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme is funded and implemented by the television and computer industry and regulated by the Australian Government under the Product Stewardship Act 2011 and the Product Stewardship (Televisions and Computers) Regulations 2011. The scheme aims to increase the recycling rate for these products to 30% in 2012-13 and 80% by 2021-22.
