What we do

Based primarily at Albert St Warrnambool, eWaste dismantles and sorts televisions, computers and a huge variety of electrical equipment into recyclable components, with the objective of creating a more sustainable environment. We also have a smaller satellite site located out of Nigretta of Hamilton.

With government policy changes you are no longer able to place any E-waste in landfill. That’s where we come in. Our dynamic team process over 225,000 kilograms of electrical products every year and converts waste into reusable resources while diverting it from landfill.
