Televisions, desktop and portable computers, monitors, mice, keyboards, cables, drives, printers, scanners and computer-related peripherals are all classified as e-waste. They contain a lot of hazardous materials like arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury. We don’t want these in the environment.

Where to recycle TVs and computer equipment

There have been increased instances of Emergency Water Line standpipes being damaged after impact by vehicles.

This damage renders the water line inoperable until the incident is reported and repaired. This can impact a resident’s water booking and result in loss of water.

All vehicle and service vehicle users please be aware of the water line and standpipe locations where you need to pass each other.  Please check that you are not on top of, or near, a standpipe.

If you notice any damage to the Emergency Water Line, or if you may have accidentally damaged it, please contact immediately the Water Manager or your Water Line Monitor so it can be repaired as soon as possible to minimise the impact on the next water booking.
