TechCollect to Host Global E-Waste Forum in Sydney on 10th September

TechCollect is hosting a global e-waste forum next Tuesday 10th September in Sydney to inspire debate and discussion around one of the greatest challenges of our generation: electronic waste recycling.

You are invited to report on the forum, and interview the keynote speakers and panellists.

With a ten-year head start, Europe is significantly ahead of Australia in its e-waste recycling efforts. Two international take-back leaders from HP and Dell will present on issues of global e-waste, before the conversation is opened to a panel including local experts to discuss the lessons we can learn to advance toward Australia’s stated goal of 80% e-waste recycled by 2022.

Electronic waste is one of the fastest growing contributors to our waste stream in Australia. About 16.8 million TVs, printers, and related accessories are disposed of each year in Australia, which TechCollect estimates equates to 106,000 tonnes of e-waste - only about 10% of which is currently recycled responsibly.

Keynote speakers and panellists at this important forum include:

  • HP Take Back Regulations Manager EMEA - Mr Daniel Seager
  • Dell Global Take-Back, Director of Compliance - Ms Jean Cox-Kearns
  • TechCollect CEO – Ms Carmel Dollisson
  • Dept of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities, Assistant Director with the Product Stewardship Regulator - Mr Michael McGee

To request 1:1 interviews and confirm your attendance at the forum, please contact:
