Is your organisation ready for Victoria’s ewaste landfill ban?  In less than four weeks or from 1 July 2019, ewaste will be banned from landfill in Victoria.  This includes all products with a plug, cord or battery.

The ban may affect your business, hospital, school, TAFE or not-for-profit organisation, so the time is  right to get ready and keep your ewaste out of landfill.

Are you ready for the ban, and are you able to help your customers, clients and suppliers recycle their unwanted electronics and batteries? It’s important to note that ewaste can be harmful to the environment and human health if not correctly handled and recycled.
