Hi Josh

Thank you for your question. These types of smart phone accessories are so convenient, however, the disposal of this kind of electrical equipment can be very confusing!

Portable chargers are not accepted in any of your kerbside bins.

Portable chargers and other electrical equipment contain potentially hazardous and valuable materials that don’t belong in landfill and are not able to be recovered through most kerbside recycling systems.

To ensure the valuable metals inside are safely recovered check Recycle Mate to find your closest drop-off point accepting electronic waste – there are thousands of locations across Australia collecting portable chargers and other items. Use the search function and type in “charger” to find drop-off locations in your local area.

I hope this helps!

Thanks for your recycling question. Every question helps us build a stronger platform for providing better recycling solutions.
