Electronic waste, or e-waste, is a term for electronic products that have become unwanted, non-working or obsolete. These include computers, laptops, TVs, monitors, mobile phones, PDAs, VCRs, CD players, fax machines, printers, gaming consoles, etc. Bellingen Council is working with local company Matthews Metal Management Pty Ltd to prevent these valuable resources going to “landfill”. The program is a sustainable solution to a previous problem waste.
E-waste drop off facilities are available at:
- Raleigh Waste Management Centre – Shortcut Road Raleigh
- Dorrigo Waste Centre.- Old Coramba Road Dorrigo
Funded under the State Government’s ‘Waste Less Recycle More’ initiative, Council aims to achieve better waste diversion and recycling rates through the purchase and installation of public place recycling bins across targeted areas within the townships of Urunga, Bellingen and Dorrigo.
