E-waste

What is E-waste?

E-waste is electronic waste, including computers, screens, printers, scanners, faxes, TVs, microwaves and all things electrical. Uralla Shire Council uses the services of the volunteer group Computerbank New England to strip and recycle as much of the E-waste as possible.

E-Waste Recycling in the Uralla Shire

Computerbank New England collects electronic recycling ("E-waste") at the Uralla Landfill and Community Recycling Centre.

Opening hours are 9:30am - 4:30pm Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Computerbank New England strips all types of E-Waste, including computers, televisions, microwaves and other types of electrical equipment, however, there is still a substantial amount of E-waste that cannot be refurbished or recycled. E-waste that cannot be recycled is paid to be transported to another recycler or is disposed of in landfill. More E-waste at our landfill means higher costs for Council and to Uralla Shire ratepayers.

To prevent Uralla Shire residents paying for the disposal of residual E-waste of non-residents, Uralla Shire no longer accepts E-waste from outside of the Shire.
