The Victorian government reports that the amount of e-waste generated in Victoria is projected to increase from 109,000 tonnes in 2015 to approximately 256,000 tonnes in 2035.
Environment Victoria reports that “Acknowledging the risks and opportunities associated with e-waste, the Victorian Government will ban e-waste from Victoria’s landfill from 1 July 2019. New regulatory measures, in the form of waste management policies, have been developed to ban e-waste from landfill and specify how e-waste must be managed. They are available on Environment Protection Authority Victoria’s website.”
