Electronic and Battery Recycling
TVs, Computers and Printers
Electronic waste does not need to end up in landfill. There are a number of drop-off sites and events around the Australia to recycle your computers and televisions. The National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme involves a combination of government regulation and industry action to take responsibility for the collection and recycling of waste televisions, computers, printers and computer products. The scheme is funded and run by industry. For more information on these organisations, including details of the services they provide, visit their scheme websites or visit Planet Ark’s Recycling Near You website which lists recycling options across Australia.
MobileMuster accepts all types of mobile phone batteries for recycling. Our partners at Battery World offer a national battery collection programme and have no limitation on the types of batteries that can be recycled by households. The program covers domestic usage and disposal of batteries. Battery World may need assistance to offset the recycling costs for batteries dropped off in commercial or bulk quantities. Battery World accept old mobile phones, household and automotive batteries at any of their stores.
You can also recycle household rechargable and non-rechargeable batteries at Aldi stores. Whilst any brand of battery can be brought back, only AA, AAA, C, D and 9V sized batteries are accepted through the Aldi program. Some councils collect small, household batteries for recycling using commercial collection boxes. This provides local options for residents.
