Ban on e-waste disposal to landfill in Western Australia

Closes 31 Mar 2023

Opened 23 Jan 2023

Overview

The State Government is committed to a ban on e-waste disposal to landfill by 2024.

Banning e-waste from disposal to landfill supports our vision for a low-carbon Western Australia with a healthy environment and secure water resources for future generations. The ban also supports the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 vision for the state to become a sustainable, low-waste, circular economy in which human health and the environment are protected from the impacts of waste.
