Waste Nothing

Electronic equipment is now collected right at your curbside on your scheduled Garbage Bin collection day. Please set out these items for pick up 0.5 metre (2 feet) away from your Garbage Bin. Large items can be put on the ground. Small items should be put in an open cardboard box or clear plastic bag (it is preferable if small items are not put out as single items). If the weather is bad, please put the items out on your next Garbage Bin collection day.

Alternatively this item is collected at the City’s Community Environment Days. Click on the link, then "Events by Date" for locations and schedule of events.

Always remember to protect your privacy. Clear all personal information from computers, cell phones and electronics prior to collection/drop-off/donation.

This applies to Handheld electronics, VCRs, Still cameras, Equalizers and amplifiers, Answering machines, Landline telephones, CD players, DVD and Blu-ray players, and Electric typewriters.
