From July 1, 2019, e-waste will no longer be accepted in any bin.
Any item with a plug, battery or cord that is no longer working or wanted is considered e-waste. It covers a whole range of items from phones and refrigerators to fluorescent light tubes.
The aim of the ban is to keep hazardous items out of landfill and to recover and reuse valuable and rare resources.
