Computer andTelevision Product
Stewardship Arrangements
The introduction and implementation of the
National Television and Computer Recycling
Scheme presented an opportunity for
NAWMA, on behalf of its Member Councils,
to reduce costs associated with the collection
and recycling of end-of-life televisions and
computers.
NAWMA entered into stewardship arrangements
with DHL Supply Chain (Australia) Pty Ltd
identifying two sites for participation in the
program – the new Resource Recovery Centre
at Edinburgh North and the Salisbury Council
Waste Transfer Station at Pooraka.
The quantity of material collected and recycled
has been substantial, as shown below:
