Free E-waste recycling now in Broome

Released 13 June 2018

Did you know that 17 million televisions and 37 million computers have been sent to landfill since 2008 in Australia?

The Shire and TechCollect are working to put an end to this with free permanent e-waste recycling now at Broome’s Waste Management Facility on Buckley’s Rd.

Electronic waste is composed of many materials harmful to the environment and when not recycled can put human health and the environment at risk.

Warren Overton, CEO of ANZRP, which runs the TechCollect program, says the partnership is a great outcome for Broome and the community can now ensure their unwanted electronics will not end up in landfill, but be recovered and responsibly recycled.

Items accepted include personal and laptop computers and cables; tablets, notebooks and palmtops; computer monitors and parts; computer peripherals and accessories such as mice, keyboards, web cameras, USBs and modems; printers, faxes, scanners and multi-functional devices; and TVs.
