The Commonwealth Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) is undertaking an electronic stewardship work program, to tackle the 500,000 tonnes of e-waste generated every year that is projected to grow to nearly one million tonnes by 2035.

DAWE has established a taskforce to drive a national consultation process to better understand e-waste in Australia and identify potential e-stewardship opportunities.

Charitable Recycling Australia members are encouraged to register on DAWE’s website to be part of conversations around electronic stewardship solutions.
