Tech Collect

 

TechCollect is a free national recycling service for computers, computer accessories and TVs (e-waste). TechCollect was established in response to the Federal Government’s National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme (NTCRS) and is the only not-for-profit industry backed e-waste recycling service approved under the NTCRS.

 

What is the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme?

On 22 June 2011, the Australian Federal Parliament passed the Product Stewardship Act, which legislated that both government and industry have a shared responsibility to reduce electronic waste, increase recycling and manage the environmental, health and safety impacts of the products that we use. From this legislation the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme (NTCRS) was established, making it law for companies that manufacture or import computers or TVs to take responsibility for the safe and environmentally friendly recycling of end-of-life products.

How does the TechCollect Program Work?

Under the NTCRS, computer and TV manufactures and importers are required to join and support a government approved service, such as TechCollect. Set up by the Australia and New Zealand Recycling Platform (ANZRP), TechCollect is funded and supported by over 60 of Australia’s leading computer and TV manufacturers and importers, many of whom are already leaders in corporate social responsibility and global product stewardship. TechCollect partners with local councils and waste management organisations across Australia to provide its service to households and businesses. Households and businesses are able to drop off their end-of-life and unwanted computers, computer accessories and TVs at sites throughout Australia and because TechCollect is fully supported by industry, this is completely FREE!
