Electronic Waste

subnav icon More

Electronic waste is the fastest growing source of waste in North America. When e-waste is not recycled, it ends up in our landfills. Lead, cadmium and mercury are found in most electronic equipment, increasing risks to human health and the environment if they are not properly managed.

The Township of South Glengarry provides residents with free access to an E-Waste Recycling bin at our landfill sites through Ontario Electronic Stewardship.

Electronic Waste

Accepted E-Waste Items

The following electronic items can be recycled in the e-waste bins:

  • Desktop and portable computers
  • Computer peripherals (keyboards, mice, trackballs)
  • Desktop printers
  • Floor-standing IT, printing, copying and multi-function devices (photocopiers, printers)
  • Mobile devices (cell phones, pagers)

Protect Your Personal Information

When disposing of electronics, ensure that all personal data is removed from the devices prior to putting them in the bin. If you are unsure how to do this, contact the device manufacturer for more information.
