Ok we all buy upgrades for our PC's Motherboards and cases and anything with Silicon in it. But what happens when council dumps no longer accept it. Now they seem to be saying even E-Waste facilities no longer want anymore waste. In the stages of moving i decided to do the right thing contact the council for advice on dumping all my old pc's and cases and software. I can put 1 crt screen in hard waste ,or 2 LCD panels ,but that is my quota for the year and from this property. Cases they will not accept. Asked about DVD's and CD's and some old VHS tape's they said general waste. WTF all those can be recycled for heavy metal and plastic by products. Now i understand why Adelaide's Wingfield dump burst into fire every Summer. So why are councils now dumping the E-Waste schemes set out by both State and Federal Governments. As i walk home i often see remnants of old CRT's on the street left out for garbage but is uncollected. Same with radio's and old Microwaves. Dumps will no longer accept them as E-Waste or under any category.
