Recycling Audio-Visual Equipment in Australia

Audio-visual equipment, like televisions, VCRs, DVD players, Playstations and other games consoles can all be recycled – whether they’re working or not. If they are no longer useful they are pulled apart and the raw materials are recovered to make new products.

Most Australian families have at least one television, and thousands of TVs are thrown into landfill every year. But the cathode-ray tubes inside televisions contain glass with very dangerous heavy metals. Recycling your television means that these metals are extracted safely, instead of being let out into the environment.

Contact your local council to find out the nearest transfer station or MRF which accepts audio- visual equipment for recycling.
