Where: Each bay (Muritai to Point Howard) will have secure drop off areas as follows:

FAQ:

  1. Will there be limit to the number of devices I can give? Yes, there are physical and financial limits to this free disposal service so we recommend you book your collection in advanced.
  2. What types of electrical devices will you collect? The priority of this collection is the most toxic stuff (computers, mobile phones, tablets etc.), but really we will take anything with a plug off your hands. The actual list of what Echo will accept is down the bottom of the EchoTech website.
  3. What types of things will you NOT collect? We will not collect hazardous waste like paint, chemicals, or LPG Gas Bottles. These you can take to Silverstream landfill. We will also not accept CDs, DVDs, VHS, LED or household lightbulbs, these can go in your red bin.
  4. What do I need to do with my devices before handing them over? We recommend – if you can – to backup any data you want first, permanently delete personal data, remove memory cards (if accessible), and sign out of any accounts that you may have opened. We will treat all devices as if they containing confidential data, and ensure a secure transit to their final destination as determined by EchoTech.
