E-waste boom: Government initiatives boost the volume of e-waste collected


WMAA Events Calendar


According to an IBISWorld report, E-Waste Collection and Processing in Australia, as consumers and businesses continue to update telecommunications hardware, the challenge posed by handling e-waste will increase.

The industry is expected to continue to perform strongly in the next five years, with majority of e-waste still ending up in general landfill - a cause of ongoing concern for local councils and other levels of government that oversee waste services.

The ability to effectively handle e-waste is anticipated to be used as a point of differentiation by the industry’s major players.
