Electronic waste (E-waste) Facts

It is estimated Australians generate around 125,000 tonnes of E-waste per year. E-waste can contain lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent, chromium and brominated fire retardants. If these items are disposed of in landfill these hazardous materials can leach into our aquatic systems, causing long term environmental and health consequences.
