You can drop off your e-waste to our premises where they are then whipped off to Abilities to be sustainably dealt with. All items are broken down into their base components and either recycled locally or sent to an ISO accredited recycling plant overseas.
This is great – where can I drop it off?
EcoMatters Store: 1 Olympic Pl, New Lynn, Auckland. The store is open Wednesdays – Sundays, 10am-2pm.
EcoMatters Depot: Unit E / 489 Rosebank Road, Avondale, Auckland. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to organise a time to drop your electronic items off at this location.
We’re closed on public holidays.
Unfortunately we can’t accept large items such as refrigerators, washing machines and extra large TV’s.
For items such as batteries, toothbrushes & toothpastes, and lightbulbs go to Recycling Weird Stuff page
