What you can do


Australia has been more active in putting out more initiatives for handling waste. Waste regulations and recycling initiatives are in place to lessen the amount of waste going straight to landfills.

The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment stated in their waste report, “The Victorian Government has banned electronic waste (or ‘e-waste’) from landfill and specified how e-waste must be managed.” All other territories are encouraged to do the same in handling their own electrical rubbish.

It may get too confusing to classify electrical rubbish. To consider if any of your electrical gadgets are candidates for e-waste recycling, you can start thinking of these questions:

  • Does your gadget have a plug?
  • Does your gadget use a charger?
  • Does your gadget contain batteries?

If your gadget has a “yes” for all these questions, that item is a candidate for recycling. Another thing you can also look at is the presence of any recycling indicators in the packaging of the item.


There are plenty of ways to recycle electric rubbish before throwing it away for good. You can choose to sell them to someone else, donate them to other institutions or sign them up for recycling facilities. E-waste is a big component in waste volumes generated by different nations. It’s always a good start to recycle them whenever you can.
