Tonnes dropped off

Wanneroo Times - - Street Watch -

THE City of Joon­dalup col­lected enough elec­tronic waste to fill two sea con­tain­ers and a three-tonne truck dur­ing the week­end.

More than 1100 mo­torists took ad­van­tage of the e-waste col­lec­tion at Craigie Leisure Cen­tre, drop­ping off items such as com­put­ers, tele­vi­sions, print­ers, scan­ners, mo­bile phones, dig­i­tal and video cam­eras, gam­ing equip­ment, tele­phones and DVD and video play­ers.

The e-waste col­lec­tion will en­sure re­sources such as tin, nickel, alu­minium, cop­per, lead and mer­cury are re­cov­ered and re-used to keep old tech­nol­ogy out of land­fill and to stop po­ten­tially haz­ardous ma­te­ri­als from leak­ing into the en­vi­ron­ment.

The City of Joon­dalup’s e-waste drop off day went well.
