Rubbish removal in Rose Bay takes numerous forms – kerbside general waste collection, green waste collection, recycling collection, and periodic bulk waste cleanup. But some forms of waste require specialist removal or disposal, and one of these is e-waste.

Thanks to the technological age we live in, e-waste, or electronic waste, is a huge volume of the waste we generate.

What is e-waste? It is unwanted, broken, or discarded electronic equipment or components of electronic equipment. It is toxic to the environment and its volume worldwide is enormous. If it is not disposed of safely, it poses a huge threat to the environment and human life.

Types of e-waste:

  • ICT/Telecommunications Equipment – PC components including screen, printer, keyboard, mouse, laptop, disks, camera, television, radio, scanner, and mobile phone.
  • Small Household Appliances – including vacuum cleaners, toasters, fryers, hairdryers, shavers, sewing machines, etc.
  • Large Household Appliances – refrigerator, freezer, microwave oven, electric hotplates, ovens, heaters, electric fans, air conditioners, washing machines, clothes dryers, dishwashers, etc.
  • Office Equipment – fax machines, photocopiers, calculators, telephones, old typewriters, etc.
  • Medical Equipment – diagnostic scanners, linear accelerators, laboratory equipment, freezers, stethoscopes, equipment for diagnosis and treatment used in hospitals.
  • Consumer Equipment – including but not limited to power tools, metalworking tools, woodworking tools, gardening equipment, and sewing machines.
  • Leisure and Sporting Equipment – including gym equipment, video games and consoles, remote controlled cars, electric train sets, and smart tech for exercising.

The Impact of e-waste: e-waste is a major global environmental challenge and, when not properly disposed of, results in air pollution, human health implications, lost employment opportunities, environmental damage, and expense.
