Kiwis, it’s time to round up all the electronics junk you have lying around and get it recycled:
Recycling electronic waste (e-waste) enables the recovery and reuse of valuable materials and ensures toxic materials are not buried in our landfills — so it’s better for our environment.
eDay is a cars-only drive-through recycling event which gives you the opportunity to recycle old computers or mobile phones in an environmentally sustainable way.
Over 16,550 cars dropped off 87,056 items during eDay 2008. A total of 946 tonnes of e-waste was diverted from our landfills. This year we hope to divert over 1,000 tonnes of e-waste from New Zealand landfills.
eDay 2009 is to be held on Saturday 12th September 2009.
I have a stash of broken small electronics. So small, in fact, that I hope ‘cars-only’ actually means ‘including bicycles’ as I intend to bike down if it’s a fine day.
