Substation33 is a social enterprise of YFS. Substation33 opened its doors in January as an electronic waste recycling centre, providing a workplace where volunteers and employees gain confidence and skills for the transition to sustainable employment.
Its purpose is to provide training and employment opportunities through the recycling of electronic waste. Electronic waste is the fastest growing waste in Australia. Most electronic appliances (such as computers and televisions) can be reused or recycled.
What we do:
- Electronic waste collection and processing
- Electronic waste audits
- Data destruction – both electronic and physical
- Full computer workshop facilities
- Computer sales from as little as $100
- We are seeking your help in diverting e-waste from landfill!
What we need:
To ensure the continued growth of Substation 33 we are always in need of electronic waste. In fact, at Substation33 we say if it had a plug or a battery we can recycle it.
What we accept:
- Office equipment
- Household appliances
- All obsolete or unwanted electronic equipment.
