E-Cycle signs onto national e-waste recycling scheme

Households and small businesses one step closer to free e-waste recycling.

E-Cycle Solutions has been announced as the third provider for the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme.

Australia and New Zealand Recycling Platform (ANZRP) was recently announced as the second provider, while DHL was the first company to sign the co-regulatory arrangement as an administrator.

The scheme allows consumers and small businesses to be able to recycle e-waste for free.

“The National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme is an Australian Government initiative that will provide householders and small businesses with access to free recycling of televisions and computers,” said Senator Don Farrell, Parliamentary Secretary for Sustainability and Urban Water, in a statement.

E-Cycle Solutions will provide recycling services for televisions through electrical outlets, including Retravision.

Other television and computer manufacturers and importers will be eligible to sign up with an administrator to have their products collected and recycled.

As part of the agreement, administrators are required to achieve a 30 per cent target for recycling computers and television in 2012/13. This will increase to an 80 per cent target in 2020/21.

Households and small businesses will be able to access the scheme by the end of 2013.
