FREE television and computer recycling drop-off events and permanent sites for Adelaide householders and small business


If you have an unwanted television or computer, there are a number of free TV and computer recycling events this weekend as well as many permanent recycling facilities across Adelaide and regional South Australia.

Metropolitan Adelaide and surrounds switch from analog to digital television signal on 2 April 2013. These events and permanent drop off facilities provide a responsible way to dispose and recycle unwanted TV’s. Electronic waste should not be dumped on the kerbside or at charity stores or bins.

Drop off points open this weekend listed below are open to all South Australian householders and small businesses regardless of the council that you live in:

Adelaide Nursery (Adelaide City Council), War Memorial Drive, North Adelaide, Open: 9.00am to 4.00pm, Saturday 23 & Sunday 24 March

City of Campbelltown Depot, 6 Newton Road, Enter via Montactue Road, Open: 9.00am to 4.00pm, Saturday 23 & Sunday 24 March

Gumeracha Depot, Lot 27 John Fisher Avenue, Gumeracha, Open 8:00am to 4:00pm, Friday 22 & Saturday 23 March


The 14 permanent free drop off locations are listed on the Zero Waste SA website at: www.zerowaste.sa.gov.au/e-waste/ongoing-e-waste-recycling-options-in-south-australia.

This service is provided as part of the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme. More ongoing drop off sites in metropolitan and regional areas will become available throughout 2013. Your e-waste is recycled into many components, instead of going to landfill.
