Electronic waste, known as e-waste, is growing three times faster than any type of waste in Australia. Computers, TVs and mobile phones which make up the majority of e-waste cannot be recycled in your council waste or recycling bins.
E-waste contains potentially hazardous material, such as mercury, lead, cadmium, beryllium, chlorine, bromine and phosphors that could enter the environment if not disposed of correctly. Through the recycling process e-waste can be kept out of landfill which conserves scarce natural resources, saves energy and avoids future greenhouses gas emissions.
The E-Waste Recycling Box (a joint initiative of MobileMuster, Storage King, and ECOACTIV) allows households, businesses and schools to recycle old electronics easily and responsibly.
All you have to do is pick up an E-waste Recycling Box from participating Storage King stores, fill it with old computers, printers and mobiles and return it to Storage King where it will be responsibly and ethically recycled to the highest environmental standards.
Watch actor Gyton Grantley shows you how to recycle your unwanted electronics for free with the Storage King E-Waste Recycling Box.
