Councils get lessons on electronic waste

 As part of delivering its national recycling program, Australia and New Zealand Recycling Platform Limited (ANZRP) is running a series of information sessions to update local government on collection and recycling opportunities.
The sessions will provide an opportunity for ANZRP and councils to discuss how the program will be delivered and funded, as well how individual councils and regions can participate as collection partners.
ANZRP wants to hear directly from councils about how to work together in the establishment of collection services for television and computer waste.
The service will be funded by member companies from the consumer electronics and IT industries.
ANZRP is an approved Co-regulatory Arrangement under the Australian Government's National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme.
It has the support of more than 16 television and computer companies that are global brands, manufacturers and importers.
ANZRP is working in collaboration with its suppliers and will ensure that the outcomes of the National Scheme are addressed in an environmentally sound manner.
ANZRP has also just published a Guide for Collection Partners which outlines how councils can choose an environmentally responsible Co-Regulatory Arrangement.
The Melbourne information session will be held on Friday 11th May 2012 from 9:30am – 12:30pm, at EPA Victoria – Level 4 Conference Room, 200 Victoria Street Carlton.
The Sydney information session will be held on Tuesday 15th May 2012 from 9:30am – 12:30pm, at Toshiba Australia – Building C, 12-24 Talavera Road North Ryde.
