eWaste Collection June 2012

On Saturday June 9 the Lane Cove Sustainability Group collected 56 items of electronic waste (the majority of which were TVs) from the streets of Lane Cove & transported them to the Willoughby Council sponsored bi-annual eWaste collection 'depot' at the Willoughby Leisure Centre car park. We see this as a small step to help dispose of eWaste in a responsible manner & would like to congratulate the Council for their smooth running of the event.

eWaste is a growing concern for many residents due to the toxic nature of some of the materials used in the manufacture of electronics & the understanding that these items should be recovered wherever possible to not only divert them from landfill but also increase recycling. We congratulate the many responsible residents (there were approximately 700 vehicles drop-offs over the weekend) who stockpiled goods until they could be deposited at this event.
