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.
