      Will my e-waste be recycled in New Zealand or overseas?2021-04-22T02:58:28+00:00

      All e-waste recovered through Noel Leeming in partnership with TechCollect NZ is recycled by local recyclers who recover and recirculate as much material as possible. However, where local recyclers are unable to treat certain e-waste components due to recycling capability limitations e.g., printed circuit boards, or where there are limited end markets for recovered resources e.g., plastics, they are exported under permit for environmentally sound treatment or further processing offshore.
