eWaste

Monash University has several disposal methods for Monash owned electronic equipment depending on the type of eWaste.

Processes ensure valuable materials are safely recovered and reused, while reducing the damage electronic items have on the environment and human health.

e-Waste can be described as anything with a plug or battery, in working condition or faulty. This includes everything from old mobile phones, computers and related equipment, audio devices, refrigerators, toasters and kettles.

On 1 July 2019 the Victorian Government banned eWaste from landfill.
