Thanks to our current eWaste recycling partner Electronic Product Stewardship Australasia (EPSA), in conjunction with Endeavour Foundation, recycling eWaste is free and convenient.

Other metal household appliances

Other metal household appliances with electronic components are accepted free of charge as scrap metal at most of our waste and recycling centres.

These include items such as:

  • microwaves
  • whitegoods (e.g. fridges, dishwashers)
  • video and DVD players
  • gaming consoles
  • hi-fi equipment and stereos
  • cameras.

The Molendinar and Reedy Creek recycling drop-off centres, run by Endeavour Foundation, also accept appliances in good working order for recycling. Ask the recycling centre staff if you are not sure which bin to put it in.
