Incorrect Disposal of E-Waste

Published on Thursday, 30 November 2023 at 11:47:03 AM

A timely reminder for residents to dispose of lithium batteries correctly after a rubbish truck fire in a neighbouring Shire this morning.
Lithium batteries are found within e-waste components such as vapes, phones, laptops, electric toothbrushes, power tools and solar power back-up storage devices.
The disposal of these devices in general waste, including bulk bins, can spark fires within the rubbish trucks.
