An e-Recycler (electronics recycler) is a recycling business who are the first stage of recycling, who have setup the plant and equipment; employ and train staff and do the real work of recycling. They come in a variety of forms both commercial and social enterprises.
Until recently most electronics have ended in conventional waste management and landfill. This is where e-Recycling is doing something positive for the environment by diverting electronic equipment and other devices from landfill avoiding unnecessary waste and recovering valuable resources before they become an e-waste problem.

Under the Scheme, householders and small business can drop-off these items for free at designated access points, which may include permanent collection sites, take-back events or through a mail-back option.
