Noel Leeming launches e-waste trial

The Warehouse Group’s Noel Leeming has introduced a free e-waste recycling trial program in partnership with TechCollect NZ.

The program offers free drop-off recycle points at 16 participating Noel Leeming outlets where people can leave old printers, computers, laptops and tablets, as well as peripherals such as keyboards, mice, power supplies, monitors, copiers, scanners and multifunctional printers and cameras.

“The service aims to process as much material in New Zealand as possible,” said David Benattar, chief sustainability officer at The Warehouse Group. “However, some components recovered will be processed overseas.”

Participating stores during the trial are Whangarei Supa, St Lukes Mega Centre, Wairau Park, Manukau Supa Centre, Te Rapa, Tauranga, Rotorua, Napier, New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Lower Hutt, Nelson, Moorhouse, Dunedin, Queenstown and Invercargill.

According to the company, the average Kiwi generates more than 21kgs of e-waste each year, amounting to nearly 100,000 tonnes of e-waste annually.
