Recycling Electronics

OES logoUnwanted electronics shouldn’t end up in the landfill. Most of the parts – steel, glass, copper, aluminum, plastics and precious metals – can be recovered and made into new products. Also, a lot of electronic equipment such as computers, printers, and televisions can be reused, further cutting down on waste.

What is Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES)?

OES is a non-profit, government funded program that helps divert potentially hazardous waste from our landfill sites by allowing used and unwanted electronics to be recycled.

Why recycle unwanted electronics?
