Tip receives 'unlimited' e-waste
Residents may now dump an "unlimited quantity" of electronic waste at Woy Woy tip at no charge.
The council is hoping to divert such waste from kerbside collection.
Council manager Mr, Andrew Pearce said e-waste was now one of the most common items placed in household bins and bulk kerbside collections across the local government area.
"Last year we recycled more than 135 tonnes of e-waste and, with the number of new items that can now be dropped off, we are hoping to continue this upward trajectory."
Items that can be dumped include televisions, computers, printers and phones.
E-waste collected at Council's three tips is transferred to a processing facility in Sydney where it is shredded and sorted to create high-quality raw materials for re-use.
