What to do with e-waste.


We recently discovered that for the month of June our local council will take all e-waste without a charge to the resident as long as you deposit it at a local drop off point.

The reason I mention this is the fact that my husband has collected computers as a hobby for many years but since moving to our present residence the collection has remained largely untouched in our back shed.  I managed to convince him that now would be a good time to get rid of it rather than leaving it for our offspring to get rid of when we are no longer able to.

You can see by the amount in the back of the ute how much stuff he had.  This is only some of the gear, we will need to do a second trip.  By getting in the back shed it made me look at some of the other gear that is in there and it prompted further culling of the contents of the shed.  I have several items ready to take to the charity shops now.

I should mention that I now have some empty boxes that my husband no longer has a need for so I will need to find things to put in them! I do have lots of wool in my stash so I will be able to sort the wool into various categories in the recycled boxes. 🙂

    Isn’t it amazing how the electronic stuff accumulates over the years. A great idea to get rid of it.

      We are fortunate that they had a cost amnesty so it was the ideal time to get rid of it.
      Do you plan to keep your ewaste?
