Recycling days & events

FREE Residential E-Waste Drop-off Day

We host a free E-waste drop off day for residents at Cintra Park Car Park, Concord every year. Our next E-waste drop off day is expected to be held February 2022.

You can bring:

  • Computers, laptops, monitors, keyboards, printers, scanners and faxes
  • Home entertainment devices such as TV’s DVD players and sound systems
  • Mobile phones
  • Household appliances such as irons, kettles, toasters, power tools and vacuum cleaners.

The following items are not accepted:

  • White goods: fridges, freezers, washing machines, dryers and air conditioners.
  • Lighting: fluorescent tubes and halogen lights.
  • Hazardous waste: smoke detectors, chemicals, broken glass monitors.

Remember to pack your E-waste securely and drive safely. On arrival, follow the traffic controller’s instructions and do not leave your vehicle unless instructed. Staff will unload your vehicle.


E-waste refers to old electrical appliances either in a state of disrepair or simply obsolete. This includes everything from computers and their accessories, mobile phones, televisions, hairdryers and power tools.

Recycling e-waste

It is important to divert e-waste from landfill as it generates hazardous toxins such as lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic. These toxins are released into soil and groundwater when these items are buried in a landfill. Correct disposal of e-waste is vital to achieving a sustainable future.

For local e-waste recycling options throughout the year, you can see the Officeworks Bring IT Back program.
