Can I place electronic waste into my bins?

No. E-waste can contain hazardous materials such as heavy metals like lead, mercury and cadmium. These items also contain valuable materials which can be recycled and reused. Also the Victorian Government banned e-waste going to landfill from 1 July 2019.
