Help protect the environment by recycling your used electronics. Bring your old unwanted electronics to the City of Barrie's Environmental Centre for free.
The City of Barrie's Environmental Centre (272 Ferndale Drive North) is open Tuesday through Saturday between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm. Electronics drop-off is FREE, and is available to Barrie residents only.
Clear all personal information from computers, cell phones and electronics prior to drop off. Consult manufacturers' websites and owners' manuals for information on how to do this.
Ensure your electronics are recycled at a facility that has been approved by the Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES). OES is a non-profit industry funded organization that oversees electronics recycling through a network of approved collection sites and processors across the province. All OES processors are audited against criteria developed by Electronic Product Stewardship Canada to ensure that electronics are managed in an environmentally sound manner.

Why should your electronics be recycled?
Many electronics may contain hazardous material and should NOT be disposed of with regular garbage. Most of the parts such as glass, steel, copper and aluminum, plastics and precious metals can be recovered and turned into new products.
What happens to your electronics?
The electronics that you drop off at the Environmental Centre do not stay there for long. They are shipped to an Ontario Electronic Stewardship approved processing facility where they are dismantled into their separate components. The materials, such as steel, aluminum, copper, glass and plastic, are used to create new products. Hazardous materials are sent for further processing and proper disposal.
