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 Waste and Recycling Depot 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.
