E-Waste Recyclers Near YOU!
Updated: Nov 2, 2020
What is the fastest growing waste stream in the world? E-waste.
Luckily, most e-waste CAN actually be reused, refurbished or recycled - and along with the growing number of obsolete or non-working phones, TVs, computers and fridges, there is also a growing e-waste recycling industry. In fact e-waste is a rich source of precious metals and raw minerals... but also toxic materials... which is why it needs to be left to the professionals.
Below is a list of all the e-waste recyclers or drop off points that I have been able to find in NZ. This is in no way an official or 100% complete list... please comment (here, on Instagram or on Facebook) with any additions and I will keep updating the list as you do.
