Free E-Waste Recycling for City of Port Phillip

You can now dispose of your electronic waste (e-waste) for free by taking it to the Resource Recovery Centre or by booking a hard rubbish collection.

Electronic waste is separated from general waste as it often contains hazardous materials that must be treated. The valuable materials in some e-waste can also be recycled.

Changes to state laws mean e-waste cannot become landfill or put in kerbside general waste or recycling bins.

Have your say

Visit Have Your Say and tell us how you recycle your e-waste. The survey closes on the 9th May 2018.
