E-Waste & Mobile Phone Recycling

E-Waste Recycling

E-WasteThe Western Metropolitan Regional Council has installed a collection bin for e-Waste at the JFR (Jim) McGeough Resource Recovery Facility, Cnr Brockway Road and Lemnos Rd, Shenton Park. The facility is accessible 7 days a week.

E-Waste comprises a broad range of household electronic items such as computers, mobile phones, VCR's, DVD players, printers, fax machines, TV's, HiFi components, etc. These items contain hazardous substances, and this initiative ensures that the components will be dismantled safely and reprocessed, diverting them away from landfill.

For further details, contact the JFR (Jim) McGeough Resource Recovery Facility on 9384 2544 or log onto the WMRC website: www.wmrc.wa.gov.au.

Mobile Phone Recycling

Mobile Phone RecyclingMobile phones contain a variety of substances which are potentially harmful if not disposed of properly. Rather then letting your mobile phone end up in landfill, now is your chance to help the environment. MobileMuster will recycle all handsets, batteries, chargers and accessories and recover 90% of the plastics and metals. The recycled materials can then be turned into fence posts, jewellery and stainless steel products.

A collection tube is located in the Town of Cottesloe's Reception area to collect phones and accessories. Other participating locations for drop off include Cartridge World - Mosman Park, Vodafone - Claremont, Mobile Connection - Nedlands and the Recycling Station at Bunnings Cottesloe (Cottesloe Centro).
