In 2020, Canterbury-Bankstown residents recycled over 19 tonnes of electronic waste (e-waste).  E-waste is the broken or obsolete electronic items lying around your house. There are a number of ways you can safely recycle your old or broken electronic items.

We have local options to drop off e-waste throughout the year or Council also run FREE drop off pop-up events, accepted materials are outlined in the table below.
