Councillors excited about e-Waste recycling
Published on 09 August 2019
Murrindindi Shire Council’s Infrastructure Portfolio Councillor, Eric Lording and Mayor Sandice McAulay (pictured) popped into the Alexandra Resource Recovery Centre to see Sustainability Victoria’s ‘take your e-Waste to a better place’ billboard and Council’s new e-waste recycling shed.
e-Waste is anything with a plug or battery that has reached the end of its useful life – think mobile phones, computers, audio devices, hair dryers, TVs, heaters, air-conditioners, refrigerators and other white goods. E-waste contains valuable resources that can be reused, as well as some nasty materials that are bad for the environment if not properly handled.
The state-wide ban on e-Waste going into landfill came into effect on 1 July 2019.
