People can drop off e-waste items to be recycled from 9am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday at the rear of the centre.

Staff will be available to help lift bulky items.

The collection, which is hosted by the City of Joondalup, is part of the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme, which aims to lift television and computer recycling from its current low rate of 20 to 30 per cent to 80 per cent by 2021. It will allow resources such as tin, nickel, aluminium, copper, lead and mercury to be recovered and re-used, while keeping old technology out of landfill.

City of Joondalup residents are reminded e-waste items are no longer accepted in bulk verge collections.
