Sims Recycling Solutions would like to invite your school to participate in a FREE electronic waste recycling Program, the program is managed by Sims Recycling solutions and is funded by their members of EPSA.
Sims Recycling Solutions is offering a FREE (zero cost to your school) electronic waste recycling program to help schools and the students clean up and recycle unwanted electronics that may be collecting dust and taking up unwanted space either at home or in your school. We hope to get all students and families involved to create awareness for the growing problem that we have with e-waste in Australia.
E waste facts:
- Electronic waste is the fastest growing category of waste worldwide
- Estimates are that globally less than 20% of e waste is recycled properly.
- Around 25 kilograms of e waste is generated per person in Australia and the number is raising.
Sims Recycling Solutions is the world’s largest electronic waste recycler and a division of Sims Metal Management. Over 98% (by weight) of all e-waste received is fully recycled and diverted from landfill.
We are currently accepting the following items as part of the free recycling service;
- Desktop PC
- UPS units
- Printers, scanners & copiers
- Computer parts & peripherals (keyboards, mices, cables, power supplies, accessories)
- Computer monitors
- Mobile phones
