Council has partnered with TechCollect (representing ANZ-ARP) to provide a free of charge e-waste recycling drop-off service at the Whitehorse Recycling and Waste Centre, corner of Burwood Highway and Morack Road, Vermont South.
The recycling service accepts the following:
The service is provided as part of the federal government’s National E-waste Recycling Scheme. Some of the infrastructure at the site has been financed through a state government grant.
Each year in Australia, about 7000 tonnes of household batteries contaminate the environment by ending up in landfill. Make a difference by dropping off your household batteries for recycling at Council’s battery collection points:
Council recycles all domestic alkaline batteries up to the size of a 9 volt battery (single use and rechargeable) free of charge including: Nickel Cadmium (NiCd), Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) and Lithium Ion (Li-Ion). This service is only available for residential household batteries and not for commercial battery recycling or for commercial quantities of household batteries. Council will not accept leaking batteries or non-domestic alkaline batteries.
Please note: Car Batteries are accepted at the Recycling & Waste Centre, Corner Burwood Hwy and Morack Rd Vermont South.
Council has set up light globe recycling bins and boxes across the municipality for residents to drop off used or unwanted light bulbs. Old-style pear-shaped incandescent light globes and compact fluorescent lampsare no longer being sold in Australia (since November 2009).
The main drop-off point for residents wishing to recycle their old globes are:
This service is for residents only (not commercial operations or businesses).
There are no fees or charges for residents to drop off their old globes for recycling. Council has allocated budget to cover the cost of establishing the recycling bins and for collection and processing of the redundant light globes.
Lamp Recyclers, a light globe recycling organisation have supplied Council with the bins and boxes to collect the light globes. The globes will then be taken to a recycling plant where almost all of the globe’s components are recycled.
