In a house full of tech loving people we have collected our share of electronics. Over time they have become outdated or just stopped working and started collecting dust in my house. I know our home is like many others. Each year with back to school shopping, new computers, tablets and other electronics are added to households, leaving even more old electronics in the “no longer needed” pile. This is a great time to reflect on what we have bought, and consider the clutter that is kept and also to look at the Ontario Electronic Stewardship
This is a great opportunity to search the house for all of the old electronics and take an inventory of everything we’re sitting on, including all the rare metals. It’s a good time for other families to do it too! You can then visit RecycleYourElectronics.ca to find out where to drop it all off. It will be good to make some space in the house and do some good for the environment.
Recycling your end of life electronics with Ontario Electronic Stewardship is great for the environment. It means that fewer old televisions, computers, phones and other devices end up in our landfills. It also means valuable materials like cooper and gold can be reclaimed and used for new products.
