What is 'e-waste'?
E-waste is old, unwanted or broken electronic or electrical equipment.
Does Council collect e-waste?
No, but we hold an annual e-waste drop-off every year so residents can recycle their e-waste items.
All items collected will be dismantled and the components reused in new products.
