What happens to e-waste?
Electronic Recycling Australia at Underdale dismantles the items to separate the various components for reprocessing into new products. Components include glass, plastics, iron, steel, tin, nickel, aluminium and copper, and precious metals such as gold, platinum and silver.
Around 90% of what's used to make televisions and computers can be recycled.
Hazardous materials, such as lead, cadmium, phosphorous and mercury, can be captured safely.
Recycling e-waste reduces our need to mine for new materials and the potential for hazardous substances to be released into the environment.
