I'm aware of the RCN (& associated) companies around Auckland, but in previous years there have been poorly advertised free e-Waste recycling events at random spots around the city (usually advertised in the local papers/universities etc), last once I went to was at Massey University about 10 months ago.

Does anyone happen to know who the organisers of these events were/if they are still running them/the details?

That was an interesting link.  The schedule does not appear however  to pertain to any future events?

Pretty sure 31st May is in the future (Mt Roskill).   It fits in with what I remember they seem to keep their schedule close to their chest the last one I attended I only found about due to a fluke RT.

Banana?

Last time we had to get rid of a heap of stuff we used: http://www.itrecycle.co.nz/
They
came, took it all away. No charge.
It was a fair bit - about 10 old desktops, a few old LCDs, Printers, an old broken server and a little bit of misc ejunk.
