What We Do
There are a number of ways to dispose of e-waste safely. While some manufacturers offer recycling programs for their products, the easiest way to ensure that your e-waste is disposed of safely is to take it to a reputable recycling facility, such as The Father’s Farm.
What We Recycle
Accepted E-waste Products
If you are unsure if your item can be recycled, view our frequently asked questions below or contact us for more information.
What items are you unable to accept?
We are not able to accept the following items:
- Lithium batteries
- Dripper line or hosing
- Evaporative air conditioners
- Soft plastics
Can you collect e-waste?
Possibly, but we would ask for a donation to cover our fuel costs.
What do The Father's Farm volunteers do?
Our volunteers assist with recycling – taking things apart, stripping wiring and sorting.
Can anyone volunteer?
There are just a couple of requirements, in order to become a volunteer:
- Presently, you must be up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccinations
- Complete a “Working With Children” check through the Department of Communities and Social Inclusion (with our assistance, and at our expense). This is because we also have young people with us participating in the John’s Place Program.
What do volunteers need to bring ?
A helpful attitude! The Fathers Farm will supply the tools and safety equipment required, however, volunteers are welcome to bring their own gear if preferred.
What are your opening hours?
Thursday and Saturday 8.30am – 12.30pm
