Electronic Waste Collection Day

If you have old or unwanted electronic items, you can safely dispose of them free of charge at Council’s E-Waste Collection. Electronic waste or e-waste is any item with a plug, battery or power cord that is no longer working or wanted.

The E-Waste Collection Day will occur at the Ocean View carpark, Queenscliffe, on Saturday 11 May 2024 from 9 am to 1 pm.

Residents can drop-off the following electronic items for recycling:

  • Household appliances
  • TV and telecommunication equipment
  • Electrical tools
  • Electronic toys
  • Sporting equipment
  • Mobile phones and telecommunications equipment

However, the following items will not be accepted:

Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams in Victoria. When not properly disposed of or recycled, e-waste can emit pollutants and become a serious health and environmental problem. This event offers a convenient way to drop off electronic waste to be safely disposed of and recycled.

If your e-waste is still in good working condition but no longer wanted, please consider donating these items to a charity or op shop, or giving it away on Facebook marketplace to someone who would have use of it.

Gather your e-waste and head down to the Ocean View carpark, Queenscliffe, on Saturday 11 May 2024 from 9 am to 1 pm. No trucks or commercial quantities will be accepted.
