In May 2018, The Hills Shire Council in conjunctions with EPSA/Sims Recycling Solutions held its first e-waste recycling event for the community.
The event took place at Castle Hill Showgrounds, residents of the region were provided with access to a local service where they were able to load up their vehicles, drive through, and have their unwanted electronics unloaded. Making this service efficient with minimal waiting time.
The outcome of this event was the residents of The Hills Shire Council have filled over two shipping containers worth of electronics. As a result, it has helped divert over 22 tonnes of e-waste from landfill.
EPSA/Sims Recycling Solutions would to thank The Hills Shire Council and the residents who took the initiative to take part in this event.
