IT’S time to gather up the old electronic goods from the home and make use of Singleton Council’s free eWaste collection service on Saturday, May 18.
Singleton Council and Hunter Resource Recovery will host the collection between 9am and 1pm in Singleton Civic Centre car park.
The collection comes a week after the launch of Singleton Council’s Recycle Right Open Day this Saturday at 9am, to introduce a new kerbside recycling service with Hunter Resource Recovery, Solo Resource Recovery.
The diversion of waste material from Singleton landfill is a high priority and they want the community and business to get on board with their future plans through better recycling.
EWaste has been in function for several years now and diverts 85 tonnes of recyclable material from landfill every year.
This year residents will be able to drop off their old eyewear, including sunglasses and prescription glasses for recycling.
The Lions Club is running the Lions Recycle 4 Sight Australia, a program that sends glasses to people around the world.
EWaste collected on the day will be taken to Mai Wel in East Maitland where it will be broken down on behalf of DHL Supply Chain under the stewardship program.
Residents are reminded that no trailers, white goods or furniture will be accepted and limited quantities will be accepted per vehicle.
For those who can’t make it on the day they can drop their eWaste into the free eWaste container at Singleton Waste Depot during normal operating hours.
For more information about the eWaste collection service contact Hunter Resource Recovery on 1800 838 884 or visit www.hrr南京夜网.au
Items that can be recycled include portable electronic items, microwaves, televisions, VCRs, DVD players, CDs and VHS tapes, stereos, mobile phones, cameras, computers, printers, fax machines, small kitchen appliances, hand power tools and automotive and marine batteries.
