Upgrades for e-waste disposal in Stawell, St Arnaud

Stawell and St Arnaud transfer stations will receive $100,000 upgrades through Sustainability Victoria’s E-waste Infrastructure Grants Program.
With the State Government banning the disposal of e-waste to landfill from July 1, 2019, the grants will allow councils to construct enclosed sheds for transfer stations to receive and safely manage rising volumes of e-waste.
The term ‘e-waste’ is used to describe anything with a plug or battery that is at the end of its useful life, such as mobile phones, computers, audio devices, refrigerators, hair dryers and so on.
Northern Grampians Shire Mayor Tony Driscoll welcomed the funding.
“We certainly appreciate the assistance by the State Government in enabling us to upgrade our transfer stations to accommodate more e-waste,” he said.
