St George Councils to host free e-recycling collection weekend

Posted 28 October 2011 by (Hurstville News)

Are you wondering what to do with those unwanted electronic appliances that may be around the home that are no longer in working order?

Hurstville, Kogarah and Rockdale councils are hosting an e-recycling collection weekend on 12-13 November 2011 to give the community the opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted household electronic equipment.

The event is a great opportunity for residents to spring clean their home and get rid of any unwanted electronic equipment.

Materials which will be accepted include televisions, computers, monitors, computer accessories, printers, scanners, faxes, DVDs, VCRs, stereos, speakers, mobile phones and accessories, power tools, kitchen and bathroom appliances, microwaves, electrical cables, toners and ink cartridges, hard drives, cameras digital or video, and vacuum cleaners.

Items which will NOT be accepted include gas bottles, white goods (fridges, washing machines), household batteries, air conditioners, and photocopiers or commercial equipment.

Only household quantities of electronic equipment will be accepted on the day.

The e- recycling collection station is located at Hurstville City Council’s Works Depot, Depot Road, Mortdale.

Gates will be open to vehicles from 9.00am until 3.30pm each day.

Residents are urged to take the opportunity to dispose of their unwanted electronic appliances free-of-charge.
