E-waste collection

Electronic waste piled up

Council coordinates an annual e-waste drop-off day for residents to dispose of their electronic waste. E-waste is old, unwanted or broken electronic or electrical equipment. All items collected at our drop-off days are dismantled and the components reused in new products. Please remove any batteries from items prior to drop-off.

Council's E-waste Collection for 2024 will occur on Saturday 11 May from 9 am to 1 pm at the Ocean View carpark, Queenscliffe. Bring unwanted electronic items to the carpark to have them disposed of safely and sustainably.
