50 Million Tons of Electronics
hits landfill each year
Globally, we throw out 800 laptops a second.
80% of our devices end up in landfill and incinerators, poisoning our air, soil and water.
Arnies Recon was founded to reduce the electronic waste going to landfill.
We just could not drive by another pile by the side of the road without doing something.
To make it easy for people, we offer free pick up in the Sydney Metro area. With increasing requests to expand we'll be looking at other locations soon.
How we work is by taking people's unwanted items to where they're wanted. Re-use is the most efficient and least impactful form of recycling.
We also work with a community of families in Africa who are teaching orphaned young men how to repair and sell devices and appliances to become self-sustaining.
What is too damaged is used for parts or recycled as scrap.
Nothing goes to landfill.
Arnies is about reconsidering our future and creating a circular flow of stuff from our shops, to our homes, and back into use.
From all of us at Arnies, thank you for your support and most importantly, for your stuff!
