There are some schemes in place for recycling of e-waste in Australia, 
including computers and mobile phones. Also e-waste is assumed to be 
"hazardous waste", so it is illegal to put it in landfill. It is also 
illegal to transport it across an international border, without a 
government licence.

See the chapter "Materials Use" in my book "Green Technology
Strategies", for more details:
