Waste and recycling


The NSW Government supports the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme.

This scheme involves a combination of government regulation and industry action to take responsibility for the collection and recycling of waste televisions, computers, printers and computer products. Under the scheme, householders and small businesses can drop these items off at designated access points, which may include permanent collection sites, take-back events or through a mail-back option.

Disposing of unwanted televisions and computers

  • If they are in working order, ask second-hand shops or a charity if they will take them.
  • Pass them on to friends or family.
  • Contact your local council for information about collection and recycling services.
  • If they are waiting for collection, store them out of the weather.
