Also, once we get out Space and shelving organised, I have in mind to start a Freecycle meeting at the space, and also to have these e-recyclers
collecting our waste regularly, perhaps monthly.

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."
