E-waste (or electronic waste) means anything with a cord or battery such as mobile phones, TV, kitchen appliances, laptop, headphones etc.

Never bin your batteries and e-waste. Binning batteries and e-waste are harmful to the environment and a fire risk.

Safe disposal options

Residents can drop off their old electronics and batteries at the Melton Recycling Facility for free.

E-waste is growing three times faster than standard local waste. Not sending these to landfill will recover more precious resources and help protect the environment from potentially hazardous materials. Recovered e-waste is carefully disassembled and suitable components are shredded, sorted and repurposed to be used in new batteries, electronics, homewares and more. 

E-waste items accepted at the permanent drop-off site include:

  • Batteries (all types)
  • computers and keyboards
  • cords
  • mobile phones
  • televisions and radios
  • headphones
  • air conditioners
  • whitegoods
  • small appliances
  • fluorescent lights
  • power tools
  • printer cartridges

Please note this facility cannot accept commercial quantities of any free disposal items and non-residents may be charged a fee.

Find your nearest drop-off locations to safely dispose batteries and certain electronic items. Locations include Aldi, Woolworths, Total Tools, Officeworks, Bunnings, The Good Guys etc.  Accepted items vary at each location.
