In Australia, e-waste is collected by local councils and community groups. The collected e-waste is then sent to specialised e-waste recycling facilities where it is processed to recover valuable materials like gold, silver and copper, and prevent hazardous materials from being released into the environment.

Glass on your mobile will take around 1 million years to break down, the plastic on your computer mouse is estimated around 3-4 million years to decompose and your heavy-duty battery will last a similar time period.
