The National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme (NTCRS) was established in 2011 to provide Australian householders and businesses with access to industry-funded collection and recycling services for televisions and computers.
To date, more than 1,800 collection services have been made available to the public and more than 130,000 tonnes of TV and computer e-waste has been collected and recycled under the scheme. This has diverted hazardous materials away from landfill and enabled the reuse of valuable resources contained in e-waste.
Don’t bin it! eWastec it.
Highly regulated, the scheme ensures the long term viability of recycling businesses involved by setting recycling targets for corporations that imported or manufactured products covered by the Regulations in the previous financial year. For the 2015/16 financial year 50% of all products sold by weight by these corporations require recycling and this target will increase to 80% by the year 2026/27. Administrators of co-regulatory arrangements organise collection and recycling of e-waste on behalf of these corporations.
From 1 July 2016, the Australian Government will require co-regulatory arrangements to only contract with recycling service providers that are certified to AS 5377: the Australian Standard for the collection, storage, transport and treatment of end-of-life electrical and electronic equipment. This will ensure a consistent industry standard for recycling scheme providers and ensure positive work health and safety outcomes.
