How much does it cost to book an E-Waste collection?
Collection charges are calculated on quantity, location, accessibility of the assets, and the number of staff required to collect it. Our standard charges start at $120 (ex gst)* for a single load / one person to attend your site with onsite parking. We are able to collect small and large loads. Collection charges may be waived for some NFP organisations. Please contact us today for an estimate.

We accept most types of batteries for collection or drop off – some types will incur a recycling fee if there is over 1kg.
Laptop batteries – Lithium: no recycling fee
UPS or car batteries – Lead-Acid: no recycling fee

I only have one or two items to recycle?
We have listened to our customers about the financial and environmental cost of small collections and recently added a service called ‘Courier Collect’. Instead of our vans making a scheduled collection at your site, you simply pack and label your items ready for collection by our courier. We can even provide boxes and packaging. This is ideal for small electronics, a few laptops or smartphones, boxes of cables etc. Please call for more details.
What are fee rebates?
IT equipment is assessed based on the several factors including; resource / scrap metal value and cost of disposal. Often there is enough residual value in the equipment to cover the entire collection fee.
What is computer recycling?
When it comes time to throw out that old PC and upgrade to a newer model, one of the biggest mistakes that users can make is to throw it out as they would any other type of waste. Read more about computer recycling here.
What electronics can I have collected?
We accept most IT equipment including: Desktop PC, Notebook / Laptop, Tablet, Server, Input Devices (keyboard, mouse, scanner), POS, Printer, Monitor, Cables and Connectors, Server Rack, Mobile Phone, Business Telephone PABX System and Handset, Portable Device, UPS, Hard Disc Drive (HDD), Networking Switch / Router and Toner Cartridges.
Do you collect CRT TV’s and CRT Monitors?
Cathode Ray Tube or CRT TV’s and CRT Monitors require specialist recycling due to the lead in the glass. The only site in Australia that is licensed to recycle these is in South Australia so we have to transport these interstate. We can accept one or two in a normal collection but for multiple units please call for a quote. Normal flat screen LCD or LED do not have lead and can be included in a normal collection.
Do you collect or recycle floor standing copiers or MFC?
We can arrange for floor standing copiers to be collected from your premises or have them dropped off at our depot. Please contact us for a custom quote. Most manufacturers have a recycling scheme so please contact your copier account manager or supplier first.

Where do you collect from?
We are based in Botany, South Sydney and will collect from most locations in greater Sydney. Please contact us if you are not sure.
Who are your customers?
We work with all business from Enterprise-Level Corporate to Medium and Small Business, Government Agencies and Not For Profit organisations. We can also collect from small or home office organisations that often cannot afford to dedicate time and human resources to an E Waste management strategy. We have found that business owners, managers and support staff often want to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill but are restricted by the costs associated with proper disposal. This leads to either inaction; IT assets left in a store room to devalue or improper, unsafe disposal. Call today to reclaim the space.
When can you collect my equipment?
Collections are normally scheduled during business hours however we are able to provide after hours collections if required. Same or next day ‘EXPRESS’ collections are often available.
What happens to any data on our equipment?
All data storage devices are wiped, or physically destroyed and completely recycled for their metal content. Additional levels of data destruction are available*. Please contact us for details.
Do I need to do anything to my equipment prior to collection?
Not unless you wish to – we will collect them as they stand.
*minimum/maximum loads may apply, excludes floor standing printer / copiers
