I guess it would depend on what you were doing. Are you just a collection point to dump stuff off and then send it off for processing or are you going to do the processing yourself? If you were doing the processing you would need your own permanent space to house equipment while if you were just collecting you could rent the back room at the tech space, stick some shelving/metal crates in there and collect as much as you can store before sending it off.

We could call ourselves gold coast bin scabs. But seriously I have thought that there is lot of money to be made in recycling (anyone want to start a business with me? :P).
We have looked at this already. Main issues:
- A group of people to devote serious time to it.
- Space to keep stuff, and the above people devoting constant time to keep that space clean and tidy.
- Whatever is set up might eventually dovetail into the national e-waste scheme, although that is as likely as not to be several years away. Announced in 2009 "After years of discussion and debate, there has been a breakthrough on dealing with electronic waste... From 2010, the federal government will set up a national e-waste scheme, aiming to recycle 80% of all TVs and computers by 2021." "The ACT will become the first state or territory to implement a new e-waste recycling scheme from May 15."
