Submissions on the Stewardship for Consumer and Other Electrical and Electronic Products discussion paper close on 25 February.
The paper is intended to inform future decision-making on e-stewardship and was published last month by the Federal Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE).
The rate of e-waste generated each year by Australians has more than doubled in the last 10 years, says DAWE.
“E-stewardship means improving the environmentally sound management of electrical and electronic products throughout their life, enabling everyone to play a part in taking responsibility for e-waste.”
DAWE is holding an information session on 1 February where South Australian councils can hear presentations on the discussion paper. Click here for details.
