Computerbank New England (CBNE)

Computerbank New England (CBNE) 

Council is pleased to partner with Computerbank New England to help divert e-waste from landfill and provide refurbished computers at minimal cost to the community. Residents can donate unwanted computer items to CBNE at the Uralla Waste Management Facility and Community Recycling Centre.

CBNE 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.
