We’re working towards the safe disposal of e-waste. We are about to commence key infrastructure works in preparation for the state-wide ban on e-waste entering landfill, which comes into effect on 1 July 2019.
With the help of Victorian Government funding, Council will build important e-waste collection infrastructure at the following transfer stations:
- Daylesford ($88,750)
- Creswick ($88,750)
E-waste can be described as anything with a plug or battery that has reached the end of its useful life. It includes everything from old mobile phones, computers and related equipment, audio devices, refrigerators and other white goods, hair driers, TVs, heaters, and air-conditioners.
The amount of e-waste generated in Victoria is projected to increase from 109,000 tonnes in 2015 to approximately 256,000 tonnes in 2035.
