E waste is a rapidly growing problem in Australia and across the world – and computer disposal is one of the major contributors. This is a growing problem even more so when people cant find a drop off point. Our buying patterns are now such that we are updating and disposing of old ones at unprecedented rates.
When we don’t manage our computer disposal and it consequently ends up in landfill, it has serious impacts on our environment. This is due to the toxins which can be released from these products if they are not handled correctly. Electronic recycling is an issue that we can almost all do our bit for.
At Hoxton we are creating jobs by recovering and recycling e-waste. We employ people with barriers to mainstream employment, including people with disabilities and people who have been out of the workforce for a while. Computer disposal or electronic recycling is a popular area for our employees to work in because they learn new skills and gain job satisfaction from helping the environment.
Items we accept – computers, laptops, servers, printers, keyboards, mice, leads, monitors, televisions and almost anything else that can be plugged into a computer
Items we DO NOT accept – household electrical items – fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, stereo, DVD players, VHS players, hair dryers and also heaters etc
