How to Recycle Your Square Hardware

Australia does not have a national recycling scheme for electrical appliances as a whole. While Square doesn’t currently offer a recycling program, we encourage you to drop off your Square hardware at your local Officeworks or Good Guys. Please call your local store prior to visiting to ensure they have electronic waste (e-waste) facilities.

Alternatively, visit the E-waste recycling drop-off points to find your nearest e-waste drop-off point.

If these locations don’t work for you, you can send it to us. Mail the reader to this address with a note to specify that you wish for us to recycle your old hardware:

ATTN: RECYCLING HARDWARE
SQUARE AU PTY, LTD
GPO BOX 1640
MELBOURNE, VIC 3001

If you need a replacement, place an order for Square hardware via Square Shop.
