Bunbury residents continue to do the right thing when it comes to disposing of e-waste with the City being praised for sending away more than 5000kg of material for recycling.
The continued commitment by residents towards diverting waste from landfill resulted in 5214kg of items such as computers, televisions and phones being sent to Total Green Recycling for disposal earlier this year.
Equally impressive was the fact that only 103kg of the material was found to be unsuitable for recycling, an effort that earned formal recognition from Total Green Recycling for the City’s “continued support and commitment in dealing with the environmental challenges faced by the people of today, and for taking positive action towards ensuring a sustainable future for generations to come”.
Electronic waste is collected at the City’s Waste Depot on McCombe Road in Davenport where residents can drop off unwanted electrical items for free.
The McCombe Road depot is open from 7am to 3.30pm Monday to Friday.
