Do I have to pay to participate in a workshop?
No, but if you have NDIS funding eWaste Connection is a registered Service Provider under the Capacity Building – Social Community and Civic Participation category. For NDIS funded participants the cost is $25 per hour.
What if I need to get information off an item I donated?
For any hardware, please ensure you have removed all data from the device if you require a copy (otherwise it will be disposed of securely). By leaving any item at eWaste Connection you relinquish your rights to and ownership of that item and it is likely to be in many pieces very soon after donation! Our donation policy can be accessed here.
How can I volunteer if I don’t have any electrical knowledge or skills?
There is no previous experience required to volunteer at e-waste Connection. We’ll train you as well as our participants. If over 18, all you require is a combined Blue Card and Yellow Card (for disability service) which we’ll help you complete.
How can I donate electrical items?
You can drop items off at either of our locations at any time. It is important you read our donation policy though. You’ll find our locations here. For large volumes of e-waste, we may be able to collect directly from you. Give us a call to enquire.
Do I have to commit to attending for a specific length of time?
Because of the time taken to train and customise our workshops to individual participant needs, we ask that you commit to attending for six months. You can of course do a trial workshop first to see whether you enjoy participating.
Are there any age limits to participation?
Most of our participants are young people however e-waste welcomes everyone.
