Heathcote and district residents can dispose of old television sets and computer e-waste for free until Sunday at Heathcote landfill.

City of Greater Bendigo mayor Barry Lyons said it was an initiative of the City of Greater Bendigo in conjunction with Future Employment Opportunities and TechCollect.

‘‘Ninety per cent of all computers and TVs can be recycled and made into new products and we are pleased to provide this opportunity for people living in the Heathcote district,’’ he said.

Heathcote landfill is open 8am to 5pm Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

‘‘Normally taking this e-waste to the Heathcote landfill incurs a fee however it can be taken to the Eaglehawk Eco-Centre anytime free of charge.

‘‘The City will provide skip bins at the Heathcote landfill to store and transport the collected e-waste to the TechCollect collection point at the Eaglehawk Eco-Centre.’’
