From Tuesday 15 May 2012, Canberrans will be able to dispose of their old or unwanted television and computer products for free under the new National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme. The ACT is the first jurisdiction ready to implement the new scheme.
People can drop off their old or unwanted televisions and computers at the Mugga Lane and Mitchell Transfer Stations which are open from 7.30 am to 5 pm, seven days a week.
It is likely the Mugga Lane and Mitchell Transfer Stations will be very busy in the first few weeks of the new scheme. The ACT Government encourages residents to consider holding their items for a while longer to avoid queues, especially on weekends. The free e-waste recycling service is a permanent arrangement and residents will be able to access the scheme on an ongoing basis.
