Urban Miners hold E-waste collections in Te Awamutu and Cambridge where you can drop-off your e-waste.

These community collections are held every month, except for public holidays, Christmas and New Year.

Our full calendar is here.

Where: ASB Te Awamutu Sports Club car park, 420 Albert Park Drive, Te Awamutu


When: 3rd Sunday every month from 9–11am

Where: Cambridge High School, 25 Swayne Road, Cambridge

There are permanent free recycling stations for all your household batteries in Cambridge and Te Awamutu at the following venues:

Te Awamutu

Te Awamutu Pak N’ Save, 670 Cambridge Road, Te Awamutu 3800

Looking for an affordable second-hand electronic device?

You can purchase refurbished second-hand items from Urban Miners at the monthly Cambridge Lions Market. These include laptops, computers, monitors and cellphones which are sold at low prices.

These are devices that were in working order when received by Urban Miners and are too good to recycle. Instead, a team of tech experts at Urban Miners check and refurbish these devices prior to resale.

Our market stall dates are here.

Cambridge Lions Market

When: 2nd Sunday every month from 8.30am to 1pm

Where: Memorial Park (Rugby grounds), 62 Taylor Street, Cambridge

Note: While we always aim to run our stall at the Cambridge Lions Market, we rely on good weather. Please check our Facebook page for cancellations on the morning of the event if the weather is poor.

Please note that our market stall is not a collection point for E-waste or batteries. If you would like to recycle your E-waste, please bring it along to one of our scheduled e-waste collection events in either Cambridge or Te Awamutu.


Urban Miners would like to thank our principal sponsors Waipā District Council Waste Minimisation Fund, Cambridge Community Board, Te Awamutu Community Board, and Waipā District Council for their support. We are also grateful for the support of our other sponsors as shown below.
