Do you have old computers past their used by date?

You can turf them at e-waste drop off points around Auckland.

More than 30 e-waste drop off days will be run around the city by Auckland based Computer Recycling.

Dubbed the "CR E-days", these will give members of the community a chance to avoid dumping their e-waste in landfills.

Community centres across the city have volunteered their spaces for the events.

Donations will be collected at the events to raise funds for the children's charity Variety.

All donations made during the CR E-days will be matched by Computer Recycling.

The company last year collected more than 18000 kg of discarded electronic waste which would have ended up in landfills.

More than 400 households dropped off their unwanted electronics during the three CR E-Days.

Computer Recycling director Patrick Moynahan said he hoped to collect and divert from landfill more than 300,000 kilograms of e-waste this year.

“There is no New Zealand-based framework or legislation as to how Kiwis dispose of their unwanted e-waste," he said, " but so far it has been really encouraging to see how much people are looking to do the right thing when it comes to disposing of their old tech.”

All e-waste collected from the events is brought back to the company's site in Onehunga where it is sorted for re-use or recycling.

The first four events of 2021 will be held on:

January 30 at First Presbyterian Church Papakura, February 6 at Green Bay High school, February 27 at Mt Albert Baptist Church, March 6 at Massey University East Precinct Albert Expressway in Albany.
