Description: ANZRP  is committed to the circular economy. In Australia, electronic waste is the fastest growing waste stream, growing three times faster than general waste.

This International E-Waste Day we will be raising awareness of e-waste recycling and educating the public about TechCollect - our national e-waste recycling program.

Activities undertaken to promote this important event will take place in Australia and New Zealand and will include:

  • the creation of a dedicated web page (hosted on the TechCollect sites) promoting the event, educating the importance of recycling, and directing people where to take their unwanted e-waste;

  • media relations targeting national, state and local news channels promoting the importance of the day;

  • a comprehensive social media campaign educating people on the importance of recycling and directing them to their nearest drop off locations;

  • working with our program members who represent the leading global ICT organisations to further  strengthen of messaging;

  • working with organizations and community groups who wish to participate on the day.
