If it had a plug or a battery they can recycle it
Do you keep old computers, kitchen gadgets, cameras and such forever because you don't want to throw them in the bin but you don't know where to take them?
A Social Enterprise Initiative of YFS, Substation33 has been active for only 3 years. It begun as an electronic waste recycling facility and is rapidly becoming an innovation space where people collaborate on projects. It is also a place where people can experience work, in some cases for the first time.
Spread the word. Tell all your friends. Maybe you could be a collection point for your neighbourhood and just deliver when you have a stack of goods. If there is a large amount of ewaste, they may collect. Many schools and businesses donate their old computers here.
At the moment the only drop off point is at Mary St Kingston (not far off the freeway). Do you know someone or somewhere that could start up a branch on the Northside?
When I think of all the things I have binned .... If only I'd known about Substation 33.
