eWaste

Ewaste

NetWaste has initiated a number of approaches to the collection of eWaste over the last 10 years. Unfortunately to date there have been no cost effective or efficient systems identified. Some Councils offer solutions. Please contact your local Council for further information.

Electronic waste can come in many forms including computers, photocopiers, printers, faxes, monitors, batteries and mobile phones.

Some of these items can be highly toxic and environmentally damaging. When e-waste is sent to landfill, poisonous substances can leach from decomposing waste and into the environment. Substances such as; Lead in cathode ray tubes and solder, Mercury in switches and housing,  Arsenic in cathode ray tubes, Antimony trioxide as flame retardant, Selenium in circuit boards, Cadmium in semiconductors, Cobalt in steel for magnets.
