Product stewardship is an approach to managing the impacts of products and materials throughout their lifecycle, including end-of-life. It acknowledges that those involved in producing, selling, using and disposing of products and materials have a shared responsibility to ensure they are managed in a way that reduces their impact on the environment, health and safety.

Through its TechCollect program, ANZRP manages the collection and recycling of TVs, computers and their peripherals under the NTCRS.

ANZRP manages the end-to-end process of waste management from collection to transportation to recycling. We work with carefully-selected service providers in each stage of the process, providing all administrative and compliance oversight. We also offer ancillary services relating to the process. ANZRP has a dedicated marketing team that can provide marketing and communications support to the collection and recycling activities it undertakes on your behalf.

Under the NTCRS, through its TechCollect program, ANZRP manages the collection and recycling of TVs, computers and their peripherals, however it is able to manage other types of waste.

ANZRP’s costs will vary depending on the type of waste being collected and recycled, the location from which it is being collected, and whether the collection is a one-off or ongoing service. Our dedicated team can assist you to determine how our service can work for you. Call us on 03 9020 2222.

For Member-based NTCRS recycling, ANZRP offers a simple fee per kilo of liability. This fee is fixed and paid by all Members so it is equitable.

Partnering with ANZRP will give your business peace of mind. We protect the reputations and brands of our partners and Member companies by operating to all standards in our collection and recycling activities – including in such critical matters as OH&S and environmental compliance. We also focus on achieving the highest resource recovery levels with evidence of outcomes achieved, thus minimising landfill and are transparent in all that we do.

ANZRP ensures the highest standards in all aspects of its operations – from waste collection to transportation to recycling including driving transparency of downstream providers – through requiring strict compliance and regularly auditing its service providers to ensure standard are being met. In particular, our recyclers are independently audited by a global environmental company.

ANZRP is a not-for-profit as it is driving a true cost service for its members that requires regular market testing for value for money. ANZRP was established by some of the world’s leading technology brands who fund its operation so it does not need to create a profit merely to provide an excellent service as best value.

The waste collected by TechCollect is treated by our approved recyclers right here in Australia, in accordance with Australian standards and subject to strict oversight. This processing may take several stages. Due to the highly complex nature of products, some of the components need to be sent to specialist recycling facilities overseas for further treatment. These facilities operate in accordance with international conventions and standards.

The National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme (NTCRS) is an approved Scheme under the Recycling and Waste Reduction Act 2020, which legislates that government, industry and the community have a shared responsibility to reduce waste, increase recycling and manage the environmental, health and safety impacts of the products that we use. We operate the TechCollect as the public face of ANZRP under the Scheme and are the market leader for the safe and responsible collection and recycling of e-waste in Australia. The NTCRS regulates that manufactures/importers that import over set thresholds to join a Co-regulatory Arrangement and fund the recycling of their liability.

On 16 December 2020 the Recycling and Waste Reduction Act 2020 (RAWR Act) came into effect, repealing and replacing the Product Stewardship Act.

The RAWR Act provides a new framework for managing Australia’s recycling and waste reduction objectives. A key objective of the Act is to encourage the development of a circular economy, including through product stewardship arrangements, that maximises the continued use of products and waste materials over their life cycle.

The RAWR Act provides for 3 levels of product stewardship: voluntary, co-regulatory and mandatory.

The NTCRS is a Co-regulatory model where Government sets the policy and the outcomes. Industry, via a Co-regulatory Arrangement, must meet their outcomes. ANZRP was formed as a non-profit, industry for industry model in response to the compliance and sustainability objectives of the Product Stewardship Act 2011 (now replace by the RAWR Act). We operate the TechCollect product stewardship program and are the market leader for the safe and responsible collection and recycling of e-waste in Australia.
