Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th December 2021 - 10am to 2pm

Mercury Bay Resource Recovery Centre Trust is holding an e-Waste Drive on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th December 2021. 

A temporary drop-off centre will be set up on Moewai Road at the proposed new Refuse Transfer Station (RTS) site. Head past the airport towards the bike park, and you will find them on the right-hand side of the road, just past Paradise Pets Whitianga (located on the left). There will be signage showing you where to enter. Operating from 10am to 2pm on both days, they will be accepting any unused or unwanted electronic waste (anything with a plug or battery-operated). A donation for smaller items is welcomed. Larger items may incur a small fee.

Examples of electronic waste (e-Waste) include TV’s, computers, mobile phones, and batteries. They will also be accepting printer cartridges.

All funds raised will go towards the planning and construction of the Mercury Bay Resource Recovery Centre.

Funding is provided for this e-Waste Drive from Thames-Coromandel District Council (TCDC) out of their Waste Minimisation Fund. They have also kindly donated the use of the premises for the two days. MBRRCT would like to thank them for their financial and promotional support. MBRRCT would also like to thank Mercury Bay Business Association and Whitianga Residents and Ratepayers for providing promotional support in getting the message out to all of our local businesses, residents and ratepayers.

Whangamata Resource Recovery Trust have an e-Waste Drive the same weekend at 101 Lindsay Road, Whangamata. If you are heading in their direction, you can take your e-Waste items there instead. Alternatively, MBRRCT will be holding two more drives in 2022, so make sure you follow them on their Facebook page and keep an eye out for when these will be happening.
