Computer Waste Collection : Do you have computer waste waiting for safe disposal? Bring it to UWA's three-day computer waste collection event. All items will be recycled. Other events...
UWA is committed to reducing hazardous e-waste in landfill. Staff, students and members of the public are invited to dispose of computer and IT-related waste that is end-of-life ie irrepairable or redundant.

Accepted: computers, including laptops and monitors, printers, faxes, scanners, keyboards, mice, webcams, modems, routers, multi-media speakers, hard drives, circuit boards, power cords, cables and mobile phones.

Please deliver materials between 8am and 10am, or 3:30pm and 5:30pm, on each day between Monday 15 to Wednesday 17 April. Vehicle access via Fairway Entrance 4 is granted during these times.

The collection is limited to IT equipment. Personal and work-related waste is accepted. Unfortunately, other electrical items, such as televisions and appliances, cannot be accepted.

Sims Recycling Solutions will break down the waste to recover reusable materials such as plastic and metals. Up 98% of the waste volume will be returned to the manufacturing process.

Please note: all items will be broken down for recycling. If your equipment is in good working order consider donating it for reuse.

Please note: UWA procedures for secure file removal and asset retirement must be followed for University computers. These steps are outlined at: http://www.sd.fm.uwa.edu.au/programs/recycling/computers.

The collection is an initiative of UWA Sustainable Development and SIMS Recycling Solutions.
