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.

FREE service to safely dispose of household paint, batteries and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs)
Residents can now benefit from a free, easy-to-use service to safely dispose of household paint, all types of household batteries and CFLs thanks to a new facility that has opened at our Kenny Road Transfer Station (Open 10am-5pm). The facility is part of a network of permanent drop-off sites, which the Victorian Government is expanding from 12 sites to up to 30 sites across the state to improve access for all Victorian householders.
The permanent drop-off site provides residents with a free service that can be accessed throughout the year to safely dispose of household paint, batteries and CFLs without harming human health or the environment.
While the dangers associated with improper disposal of household paint, batteries and CFLs cannot always be seen straight away; these products can pollute the environment for future generations, as well as harm their health. Please do not pour paint down the drain or put these products out with your regular rubbish collection.
Instead, you can reduce hazards in your home and protect the environment by disposing of these products safely and easily throughout the year at the permanent drop-off site.
