Among my tasks is to co-ordinate the Auckland sites for eDay - Cleaning up New Zealand's eWaste!
Recycling electronic waste (e-waste) enables the recovery and reuse of valuable materials and ensures toxic materials are not buried in our landfills - so it's better for our environment.
eDay is a cars-only drive-through recycling event which gives you the opportunity to recycle old computers or mobile phones in an environmentally sustainable way.
Over 16,550 cars dropped off 87,056 items during eDay 2008. A total of 946 tonnes of e-waste was diverted from our landfills. This year we hope to divert over 1,000 tonnes of e-waste from New Zealand landfills.
eDay 2009 is to be held on Saturday 12th September 2009.
If your old machine is sputtering and collapsing, here's your chance to unload it in an environmentally acceptable way. Oh, and if you have half a day spare, we could do with some more volunteers
