The future is in your hands.
Don't let it go to waste.™
Electronic devices are filled with reusable resources – everything from glass and plastic to gold, silver and copper. Proper recycling allows these resources to be reused and put back into the manufacturing supply chain.
Recycle My Electronics offers safe and secure recycling for your personal data protection, your business and the environment.
When recycle with EPRA/Recycle My Electronics, you’re helping to:
- Ensure the safe and secure destruction of personal data.
- Protect health and safety of workers and handlers.
- Divert e-waste from Canadian landfills.
- Prevent e-waste from being illegally exported or handled by irresponsible recyclers, decreasing environmental issues for the planet.
- Reuse the infinitely recyclable resources from within devices that can be put back into the manufacturing supply chain, conserving natural resources.
Why Recycle? At Recycle My Electronics, we believe What’s Inside Counts.™
Recoverable resources count:
Many of the resources inside our electronics, including plastic, glass, gold, silver and copper can be reused continuously without losing their properties. By recycling electronics, resources are recovered, recycled and reused – reducing our overall carbon footprint and lessening our dependence on mining for new resources. Recycling with EPRA/Recycle My Electronics programs also diverts e-waste from illegal export and Canadian landfills.
Safety and security counts:
Responsible recycling ensures the safe and secure destruction of personal data stored on hardware. We all have important information stored on our devices, and the security of our personal data is a valid concern. When you drop off electronics to an EPRA/Recycle My Electronics drop-off point, devices are quickly processed, shredded and recycled into small particles so that they can be put back into the manufacturing supply chain.
EPRA/Recycle My Electronics programs have a vast network of over 2,500 collection locations across Canada consisting of return-to-retail locations and authorized drop-off points committed to recycling end-of-life electronics in a responsible manner. In fact, there’s a drop-off location within 30 minutes of most Canadians.
Recycling Electronics in Ontario
The new electronics regulation in Ontario is now in effect as of January 1st, 2021 under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act.
The regulation moves Ontario to an Individual Producer Responsibility model which is overseen by the Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority.
Producers can choose to cover the cost of the program through internalizing the cost in their product price or by covering the cost through a recycling fee/environmental handling fee per unit sold.
As a not-for-profit industry-led organization with a national platform that keeps costs down, EPRA/Recycle My Electronics programs provide reliable, low-cost services that producers and citizens rely on. We have in-depth knowledge and a stellar record in meeting compliance objectives of regulators. You can count on us because we have been selected for our electronics industry, by our electronics industry.
