Recycling computers

If you have some computer waste, consider taking a drive to Riversdale Road, in Camberwell. I did, and best of all, they’re even open on public holidays (I went on 26/01) Details:

City of Boroondara Waste Transfer Station,
648 Riversdale Road, Camberwell
Phone 1800-353-233

Tell them you’re there for the “Byteback” program, and go in and dump your computer related waste. CRT monitors, old PCs, and so on that seemingly no one else wants. Best of all, they take it off your hands, for free.

Naturally, don’t throw stuff thats useful away. Give it away to folk like ComputerBank. Their recycling site should also be a useful resource.

    If you leave your unwanted computer stuff on the nature strip, it goes away for free and you don’t have to drive anywhere, which is probably a boon for the environment. This works for just about any other type of hard waste too!

    This is the website for Byteback, http://www.bytebackaustralia.com.au/

    Will have to try them out as most recyclers wanted money.

    We’ve used Freecycle successfully to get rid of old office equipment, computers, and furniture. Great free service and the people come to you.

    @ INFI: I think if you leave a dead computer on the nature strip it would just end up in the tip rather than being recycled wouldn’t it?
