Electronic waste is growing around three times faster than general waste, with Australians throwing away more than 100,000 tonnes a year.

All electronic waste contains hazardous materials which can contaminate soil and groundwater. They also contain precious metals and components that can be recycled.

Under Victorian Law, electronic waste is banned from landfills.

Bayside residents are encouraged to drop off their larger e-waste items at the Bayside Waste and Recycling Centre, 144 Talinga Road, Cheltenham 3192.

The below items will not incur a cost. There may be a charge for other e-waste items at the Bayside Waste and Recycling Centre.

  • computers
  • computer parts (hard drives, motherboards, CPU’s and CD driver)
  • computer accessories (keyboards, mouse, joysticks and web cameras)
  • tables and notebooks
  • servers
  • televisions.

If you are a Bayside resident, larger e-waste items – such as white goods and televisions – can be collected and recycled as part of your hard waste collection.
