BEC’s Electronic Waste Recycling

BE Collective is constantly driven by our desire to use our business to make a positive change and lead other business toward the same goal. We have been inspired by what Substation 33 is achieving, and as part of our continued efforts to support them however we can, and help the planet while we are at it, BEC receives (and even collects) e-waste to be reused or recycled with SS33.

Substation 33, is an electronic waste recycling business we did some probono work for. They are still making waves recycling and re-purposing electronic waste, keeping it from going to landfill, and investing it in projects that give back to the community (check out some of their exciting projects here). They are also doing some amazing work in providing jobs and training for the long-term unemployed of Brisbane. 

If you are wondering what kind of waste they accept, the Substation 33 rule of thumb is ‘if it had a plug or a battery, we can recycle it!’

NOTICE: We’ll Come Pick Up Your E-Waste

We’ve been inspired by the good folks at Substation 33, and are throwing our support behind their continued sustainable & social efforts by receiving (even collecting) e-waste from Clients & colleagues around Brisbane City, and delivering it to Substation 33 to be reused or recycled. 

Substation 33 is an electronic waste recycling business we did some probono work for last year. They do some amazing work recycling and re-purposing electronic refuse, keeping it from going to landfill, and investing it in projects that give back to the community (check out some of their exciting projects here, the sweet DIY Bluetooth speaker kit pictured is just the beginning). They also provide jobs and training for the long-term unemployed of Brisbane. 

So if you have anything electronic lying around destined to be thrown out, bring it in to us instead. We will take it to the SS33 guys and it will be put to good use. If you are wondering what kind of waste they accept, the Substation 33 rule of thumb is ‘if it had a plug or a battery, we can recycle it!’

Leslie St Subdivision

Project No: 7005

The BEC team were engaged by Urban Planners Queensland to assist in resolving a complication that had surfaced in a subdivision in Bardon. The 1 into 2 lot subdivision had a bus stop in the middle of its road frontage, and Brisbane City Council’s initial advice was that the subdivision was not possible as at least one of the driveway crossovers would be within 9m of the bus stop.

Following our investigation and review, BEC produced a letter of traffic compliance for Brisbane City Council which addressed each of the issues raised, proving that the proximity of the bus stop to the proposed crossovers would not be an issue, and was common practice within BCC jurisdiction.
