Recycle your electronics in Brisbane and Ipswich

Do you have unwanted electronics and appliances lying around your house or office creating clutter?

Make space and get rid of old electronics the environmentally friendly way!

CPL has partnered with Substation33 to bring you a fast, reliable and safe recycling solution that also supports people with disabilities. 


What is eWaste?

Electronic Waste (eWaste) includes unwanted or obsolete electronic equipment and appliances, such as computers, printers, vacuum cleaners and microwaves. Here's a full list of acceptable eWaste that we accept.

eWaste is one of the fastest growing contributors to our waste stream. Some of these items can be highly toxic and can damage the environment when left to decompose in landfill. By recycling your unwanted ewaste through CPL, you’ll not only be supporting people with disabilities but also the planet. 


What’s involved?

  1. Drop off your eWaste to one of our participating sites or organise to have it conveniently picked up.
  2. We sort the items and then disassemble the equipment into recyclable parts.
  3. The work is completed by people with disabilities, providing real world skill development opportunities.
  4. Each kilo of recyclable materials sold provides vital income for CPL services.
