Household Battery Recycling

Thousands of tonnes of batteries are used in Australia every year. If these end up in landfill they leak and contaminate soil and groundwater as they contain toxic metals such as cadmium, mercury and lead. 

Mobile phone Recycling

Mobile phone should be separated from household waste and disposed of at recycling centres. Mobile phone batteries and mobile phones can be disposed of at most mobile phone retailers and collection points within the City of Stirling taking part in the Mobile Muster recycling program. Over 90% of the materials in mobile phones, accessories and batteries can be recycled.

Fluro Lights Recycling

Fluorescent light globes contain mercury which can be harmful to the environment if disposed incorrectly. Generally, the higher the power usage, the more mercury is required to operate a lamp. By recycling these light bulbs, the mercury can be recovered and is commonly reused in the dental industry as amalgam for fillings. The glass, phosphor and aluminium contained in the lamps can also be effectively recovered for reuse, thus saving valuable resources.

Ink Cartridge Recycling

Printer cartridges are made up of a complex combination of plastics, foam, metals, ink and toner. By recycling these products waste is diverted from landfill and resources can be saved as plastics, metals and inks can be used to make new products.

School battery recycling program

Discarded batteries can present dangers to personal health and the environment. The City of Stirling values the importance of protecting our environment and undertakes a number of initiatives to maximise recycling and minimise waste.
