E-waste

Computers and other electronics contain substances which are potentially harmful to human health, wildlife, and precious groundwater resources.  These hazardous substances include lead, mercury and cadmium.  Therefore, it is extremely important that these materials be diverted from landfills and recycled or reused properly.

Before disposing of useable electronics consider donating them to help BC schools and communities. For more information on donating electronics click here www.cfsbc.ca.  

Electronic waste will be accepted FREE OF CHARGE for recycling at select collection points.
