Electronic Waste Recycling has now been available across North East Victoria since July 2011. During which time residents have diverted 69143 Kg of electronic goods away from landfill through NevRwaste’s electronic waste collection bins at transfer station. This is a great result!
The electronic waste is broken down into commodities with up to 98.2% of the goods being recovered and diverted away from landfill. A typical environmental breakdown of a sample 7398kg shipment is shown.
NevRwaste purchased more collection bins, in November, to streamline the transport arrangements and to keep up with demand for the service at Member Council transfer stations.
