Electronics contain a variety of materials — including glass, plastic, gold, silver, copper and palladium — that need to be recovered and recycled. This is why it is important that they end up in the right place.

The companies that make these products are responsible for managing and recovering them, so they are not accepted in municipal collections. Therefore, they are not accepted in municipal waste, compostables or recyclables collections.

How should you dispose of electronics?

  • If your electronics still work, offer them to someone or to an organization to be reused.
  • Take them to an ecocentre, no charge.
  • A number of places accept electronics. Consult DTRITUS.
  • Arrange pick-up of your large electronics (TV larger than 60 cm [24 inches], home entertainment systems) via DTRITUS.
  • When in doubt, consult DTRITUS to find out how to dispose of your items.
