All electronic items will be banned from landfills by the Victorian Government, from July 2019.
Electronic items (known as e-waste) are actually full of valuable resources that can be reused. They can also contain hazardous materials that need to be kept out of landfills.
The ban includes all electronic appliances, including phones, computers, TVs, whitegoods, electric power tools, and more. If it has a plug, battery, or cord, it is e-waste.
To dispose of these items correctly, please take them to your local Resource Recovery Centre (see our locations below).
Greater City Shepparton Council is committed to providing value for money service to the community and environment. As such, waste charges reflect the cost of disposal and/or processing.
Where possible, Council provide disposal free of charge. See below for a list of free and charged items for Resource Recovery Centres and Cosgrove Landfill.

The RIGHT WAY to load up
Before your next trip to the resource recovery centre, think about how you can save yourself time and effort by sorting your load at home.
By sorting your materials it will make it easier for you to move from bay to bay and recycle as much of your waste as possible. Sorting your load will ensure you don’t just throw everything into the general waste skips which may save you money.
Make sure you secure your load with net, ropes or tie down straps to ensure you don’t litter on the way to the resource recovery centre. You can be fined for littering if waste items from your load are blown onto the road or roadside area.
