Welcome to eDay
Clean up New Zealand’s e-waste
Recycling electronic waste (e-waste) enables the recovery and reuse of valuable materials and ensures toxic materials are not buried in our landfills – so it’s better for our environment.
eDay is a drive-through recycling event which gives you the opportunity to recycle old computers or mobile phones in an environmentally sound way.
eDay 2009 saw over 16,430 cars drop off 83,536 items across the country. A total of 976 tonnes of e-waste was diverted from our landfills.
eDay 2010 is taking place on Saturday 6th November at over 40 centres across the country. Click here for details of your closest drop-off location.
