Viano is a party to the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme that was established in 2011 to provide Australian householders and small business with access to industry-funded collection and recycling services for televisions and computers.
To date, more than 1,800 collection services have been made available to the public and more than 130.000 tonnes of TV and computer e-waste has been collected and recycled under the scheme. This has diverted hazardous materials away from landfill and enabled the reuse of valuable resources contained in e-waste.
The objectives of the scheme are to
- Reduce waste to landfill, especially hazardous materials found in e-waste;
- Increase recovery of reusable materials in a safe, scientific and environmentally sound manner; and
- Provide access for households and small businesses Australia wide to an industry-funded recycling service.
