You can drop off your e-waste to our premises where most of the items are 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 and when can I drop it off?
There are drop-off options available seven days a week:
Resource Recovery Depot: Unit E, 489 Rosebank Road, Avondale, Auckland.
Summer Hours: our depot will open again from 9am Tuesday 9 February 2021. Until then, recycling drop-offs can be taken to our EcoHub & Store during their usual opening hours (listed below).
EcoMatters Store: 1 Olympic Place, New Lynn, Auckland.
We’re closed on public holidays.
The only large appliances we can accept are fridges and freezers, which can be dropped off at the Resource Recovery Depot. Unfortunately, we can’t accept other large items such as washing machines and extra large TVs.
For items such as batteries, toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes, and lightbulbs go to Recycling Weird Stuff
