Melbourne ewaste & computer recycling

1800ewaste Melbourne – electronic waste and computer recycling service.

1800ewaste is Melbourne’s leading ewaste collection and recycling service. We’re dedicated to diverting as much electronic waste (ewaste) from Melbourne landfill and overseas export as possible. For too long, metals such as mercury and lead found in computers and other ewaste have been buried in landfill, leaving the toxins to leach into the ground and waterways. This cannot continue.

The 1800ewaste service is professional fast and reliable. We collect your ewaste from your door and deliver it to the appropriate recycling facilities where 95-98%, by weight, will be recycled for future use.

What is ewaste?

The term ‘ewaste’ encompasses all old electrical appliances either in a state of disrepair or simply obsolete. This includes everything from fridges and microwaves to mobile phones and computers. The correct disposal of ewaste is of vital importance to being able to achieve a sustainable future.

Safe, environmentally friendly & certified ewaste recycling.

1800ewaste only use accredited electronic waste recyclers, ones that are governed by ISO140001 standards – the international regulation for the safe disposal of electronic waste.

what is the price to disposal of a 3 yr old dishwasher? I live in Seaford, Melbourne VIC

Ewaste January 6, 2010 at 2:08 pm

Hi Paul, Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. Unfortunately we don’t service the Seaford area at the moment. We’d recommend contacting your local council to find out how they’d suggest you dispose of this hazardous waste. Thank you.

John February 5, 2010 at 11:28 am

Hello
Do you collect old photocopiers and how much do you charge for Burwood Vic area?

Ewaste February 5, 2010 at 3:47 pm

Hello John, Yes we do collect and recycle photocopiers – the best way for you to get you an accurate quote is to call the office on 1800 392 783 (freecall) and speak to one of our operators. Thank You

Alan Steadman February 7, 2010 at 2:30 pm

Is there a cost to take an old computer desktop away, if so how much

Ewaste February 10, 2010 at 7:06 pm

Hi Alan, Yes there is a cost – the best way to get an accurate price based on your exact requirements is to give our office a call. It’s free… the number is 1800 392 783. Thank you

Gillian April 27, 2010 at 5:56 pm

I live in Malvern. Can I arrange to have a T.V. picked up for re-cycling?

Ewaste April 28, 2010 at 1:41 pm

Hi Gillian,
We service the Malvern area and would be more than happy to arrange a collection for your T.V. Just give the office a call on 1800 392 783 (freephone) and one of our team will be able to help you.
Thank You.

Jessy May 8, 2010 at 12:43 pm

Hi, can we bring to you the equipments? sometimes during council collection all aroud Melb we often find abandoned Pc/Tv/Stereos and we are aware that is they go to the landfill is even worse, so i we keep them up, can then bring them up to you free of charge? thank you regards

Ewaste May 24, 2010 at 11:31 am

Hi Jessy,
It is a shame that councils often don’t collect electronic waste and unfortunately we do not have any drop off points. If you give our office a call on 1800 392 783 (Freephone) they will be able to give you a quote over the phone and arrange a collection for you.
Thank you for your enquiry.

Hi,
I am a local artist looking at acquiring old computer keyboard keys for an art sculpture. Is there any chance I am get the keyboard keys from you before that get dump somewhere.

PARAMA December 7, 2010 at 11:46 pm

I want to dispose off one of my old televisions. I live in clayton. I was wondering if your service is available in this area? If so, what is the price to dispose it off?

deborah December 29, 2010 at 3:09 pm

I thought that your site was a fantastic idea till I got to the part that charges for pick up.
No wonder everyone is just chucking stuff at the tip. Plenty of other areas of recycling are free as they make the money by the recycling of the collected product such as mobile muster etc. I am hard pushed to see why ewaste is not set up like this, everyone out to make a buck everywhere. If its due to your picking up then give people the option of dropping it off to you I’m not opposed to doing that.
I care for the environment but dont have the bucks just the energy.

Brad Troiano January 16, 2011 at 11:23 am

With the amount of money made in the recycling process of ewaste eg, the metals extracted from the ewaste such as gold, silver, etc. The cost of disposal of the ewaste to the consumer should be free. With just another cost invoked on the end user in this user pay society, no wonder we just throw it out in the rubbish. It is a pity that the governments don’t provide drop off points or subsidies for companies like yourselves that are trying to do the right thing for the environment.

Ewaste February 9, 2011 at 9:59 pm

Hi Brad,
Whilst it’s true that ewaste contains valuable materials, the cost of properly recycling these items far outweighs the value of what’s inside. That’s why there’s such a problem with illegally exporting ewaste to countries with cheap labour and fewer health and safety laws. Have a look at our article “Who pays the price for your free electronic waste collections?” for more information. It would be great if the government could help us out with costs, and that’s what we aim to achieve my raising the awareness of recycling electronic waste.
Thanks for your feedback.

Ewaste February 10, 2011 at 3:22 am

Hi Deborah,
We completely understand your frustration, but our costs actually cover the costs of properly recycling electronic waste. Companies offering free “recycling” are usually re-selling or illegally exporting ewaste to developing countries. Our recycling process involves taking all ewaste apart by hand and disposing of the toxic materials safely – have a look at our article “Who pays the price for your free electronic waste collections?” for more information. We’re also a private company and have no funding from the government, but we do agree that more options for recycling should be available.
Thank you for your feedback.

Ewaste February 10, 2011 at 3:33 am

Hi Parama,
Prices can vary depending on size and location, so it’s probably best to give our office a call on 1800 392 783 (Freetoll) and one of our customer service team will be happy to assist you.
Thanks for your enquiry.

Ewaste February 10, 2011 at 3:35 am

Hi Alex,
Unfortuntely we make a promise to our customers that no part of their electronic waste is resold or given away, and 98-95% of our ewaste is recycled – even the plastic.
Good Luck

Catherine Ryan June 26, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Hi, do you service or have any idea of services in the Geelong area?

Ewaste June 29, 2011 at 11:54 pm

Hi Catherine,

Unfortunately we don’t service the Geelong area – why not try contacting your local council to see when their next council pick up is?

Thanks for your enquiry.

John July 16, 2011 at 3:38 pm

i have been trying to find a free e- waste drop-off point near Bayswater, and I thought I had found one when I found your web site. Then I realised there was a cost involved. I agree with Deborah. I can’t see why you can’t give a price for pick-up of e -waste. If it’s just a tv or similar, you must have a pretty good idea of how much it costs to pick it up by now, seeing as you service most suburbs. If you can’t give a firm price, at least you could give an aproximate one so people can have a rough idea how much you charge. I think the real reason you don’t have drop off points is you won’t make as much money as when you pick-up the waste. I’m all for recycling but it has to be at little or no cost. After all the consumer has no other real option but to buy electronic equipment which contains all this (eventual) e -waste. After all, if we didn’t, you wouldn’t be in business! Surely the cost of eventual disposal is costed into the purchase price.

Ewaste August 17, 2011 at 7:09 pm

Hi John,

We understand your frustration and wish we could offer a free recycling service. The reason we don’t have pick up points is not because we make more money out of collections, but because the recycling facilities that we use are often well outside the cities and suburbs so it means that we can service more areas. The amount we charge actually covers the cost of recycling the items itself and we never resell or refurbish any items that we collect. We try not to publish prices on the website because we customise all of our quotes to take in size, location and access details – for example, does it require two men to remove, or is it an oversized item. We much prefer providing tailored, obligation free quotes over the phone or through email.

Hope this answers a few of your queries.
