TWO 12m shipping containers were filled with electronic waste after the City of Joondalup’s collection on the weekend.
Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said that was half a container more than the previous event held in September.
“More than 850 cars attended Craigie Leisure Centre to deliver e-waste which will soon be sorted and processed, aiming to recycle as much as possible,” he said.
“One family finally said farewell to their clunky beige relic of computing history – the old Commodore 64 keyboard, and another let go of their old wireless that was manufactured long before FM radio existed.”
Residents are reminded that domestic quantities of e-waste can be dropped off for free at the Tamala Park and Balcatta recycling centres.
The City will also hold a clothing and textiles drop-off event on February 23, 9am to 2pm at Craigie Leisure Centre.
