E-waste is any item with a plug, battery or power cord that is no longer working or wanted. It covers a whole range of items from phones and refrigerators to fluorescent light tubes.
E-waste contains many potentially hazardous and valuable materials, which don‘t belong in landfill.
As of 1 July 2019, the Victorian Government has banned all e-waste from going to landfill. That means e-waste can’t go in any bin, it must be taken to a drop off location to be recycled.
