Southern Landfill's recycling centre

Most types of ewaste can be recycled for free.
Television sets and computer monitors will cost you $30 to drop off. Some of these screens include leaded glass and mercury, and all must be stripped out, prepared and processed overseas. The charge is in line with other recyclers.
