E-waste can now be recycled at Cove Hill

Ever wondered if used elec­tronic waste (e-waste) could be reused? A new electronic waste collection service is available in Brighton, creating more recycling options for residents and businesses. Brighton Council and the Resource Work Cooperative have  organised an electronic or ‘e-waste’ collection point at the Cove Hill Waste Transfer Station. The electronic waste will be collected from Brigh­ton, sorted through manual recycling in South Hobart,  and then sent to various  recycling facilities interstate and throughout the world.

The e-waste bin is open  Friday to Monday and is used for disposal of:

  • Computer parts
  • Modems
  • Smart boards
  • Power tools
  • Welders
  • Car batteries (smaller batteries can be recycled at the Council Offices waste booth).

e-waste that cannot be recycled locally at this stage includes:

  • Television screens (these can be recycled at Harvey Norman)
  • Printers
  • Keyboards
  • Docking stations
  • Kitchen appliances.

There is a list of smaller e-waste items such as mobile phones that can be recycled via the Brighton Council Offices foyer waste booth. If you have bulk computer changeovers that need recycling, head to www.brighton.tas.gov.au/ property/waste/ to check if it is the type of electronic waste that can be recycled.
