many components can be reused or refurbished. In addition, some components can contain materials that render them hazardous, depending on their condition and density.
Community e-waste facilities
We have partnered with City of Ryde to host a recycling station for students and staff. The drop off station is located in the MUSE Student Connect Foyer (18 Wally's Walk) where the following items can be recycled:
- Household batteries
- Fluorescent light globes - all sized compact gloves and tubes (household lights only)
- Printer cartridges (excluding large cartridges from multi-function devices)
- Mobile phones - including handsets, batteries and accessories
Other items can be recycled through your local council. Visit Recycling Near You to find out how.

Any components sent overseas for processing are sent to large firms and do not end up with small-scale street processors.To request an e-waste collection from your area, please contact Property via the online Services Request form.
