Nearly 15 million old TVs and computers go to Australian landfill each year. Recycling this e-waste would recover valuable materials, contain toxic chemicals and create thousands of green collar jobs.

Environment ministers are meeting this November to make a decision about this issue. Email Peter Garrett and the state Environment Minister to let them know that you support e-waste recycling and that you want action. And keep your eyes peeled for our postcard hitting the streets!
