Here are some tips for safely recycling your e-waste.
The e-waste recycling depot in New Plymouth correctly disposes of all e-waste, recycling all reusable material.Where: Whitaker Civil Engineering, 37 Corbett RoadHours: Saturdays from 8am to noonPrice list
See rcn.co.nz/ewaste for more information about e-waste.
If your unwanted computer equipment, printer or fax still has life left in it you could sell it or give it away:
Note: Delete all personal data from your computer before disposing it. If in doubt about how to do this contact a local computer service shop.
Large businesses and government agencies have the option to insist that their suppliers take back unwanted equipment. Another option is to use The Waste Exchange. The Waste Exchange is an online tool designed to help your business/organisation find markets for by-products, surplus materials and waste. You can list products which can be used or search for materials you may need.
The Waste Exchange is a FREE service available to all business and industry and may be used by non-profit organisations, schools and individuals to locate materials they need.
Vodafone and Telecom accept old equipment and have drop-off bins in their shops for phones, chargers and batteries.
Or you can support Starship Hospital through their Mobile Phone Recycling Programme – Pick up a ParcelPost™ Returns Freepost envelope from selected newspaper outlets nationwide, ASB Bank branches, selected Telecom stores and The Warehouse, package the phone then pop in a local post box. Phones in working order are refurbished and exported to places such as Hong Kong, China or to Eastern Europe, while those beyond repair are recycled. Funds raised go toward essential equipment and services for Starship Hospital. www.starship.org.nz/phone
If you have an unwanted photocopier, either take it to the e-waste recycling depot or contact the manufacturer, e.g. Fuji Xerox, Konica Minolta, Ricoh, Canon, as they may be willing to collect it for refurbishing or recycling. There might be a cost, depending on location, age of machine etc.
There are no further e-days planned.
