E-waste

E-waste or electronic waste is any item with a battery or a plug, such as a TV or a computer, that is no longer used or working. Some types of e-waste can be accepted at SUEZ facilities for recycling.

About e-waste

E-waste often contains toxic and hazardous materials such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and brominated fire retardants. Items containing these substances are damaging to the environment and should not be sent to landfill. Some items, such as computers, can also contain valuable metals such as gold and copper. If disposed of correctly, the recyclable components can be recovered for re-use and hazardous materials can be treated appropriately.

E-waste collection

Some SUEZ facilities will accept deliveries of household quantities of certain types of E-waste. Charges may apply for some items – contact Customer Service on 1300 651 116 for more information.
