Free e-waste collection at Redland Bay and Birkdale
On 28 May analogue free-to-air TV signals in the Redlands were switched off and replaced with digital-only signals. You can give your old TV a proper farewell and a new life by recycling it.
You can now bring your unused televisions, computers and computer equipment to our e-waste recycling collection points at both Redland Bay and Birkdale Waste Transfer Stations. This is free for all residents and small businesses.
Council already has free cardboard and polystyrene recycling collections at Birkdale and Redland Bay. Use this service to get rid of your new television packaging now - just remember to separate them!
What e-waste can you recycle at the collection points?
• TVs (broken screens will not be accepted)
• Computer mouses
• Cables – printer, computer, laptop
• Hard drives
• Circuit boards
Non e-waste items
All of these items are not e-waste, but can be taken as general waste or scrap metal to Council’s waste transfer stations:
