E-waste - WA Transitional E-waste Program (WATEP)

The WA Transitional E-waste Program (WATEP) was designed to bridge the gap before the federal government's national product stewardship scheme came into play.


Local government and commercial retailers - NOTE this program has now ceased.


With increasing production and demand for electronic products such as televisions and computers, e-waste is growing three times faster than any other waste stream.

Before the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme commenced, the State Government provided $1.5million to subsidise up to 50 per cent of e-waste disposal costs for metropolitan depots and up to 50 per cent of disposal and transport costs for non-metropolitan depots.

Since the introduction of the national scheme, the WATEP has ceased. The drop-off points nearest to you can be found through the national scheme's location system.
