Hi Jason

Thank you for your recycling query.

Power leads/ cords are not accepted in any of your kerbside bins.

Electronic 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. Also, loose power cords would likely get wrapped around other items and machinery at the recovery facility and could potentially damage equipment.

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.

I hope this helps!
