Electronic Waste: What’s Inside Counts
EPRA/Recycle My Electronics programming supports a sustainable future for Newfoundlanders and Labradorians through safe, secure recycling of end-of-life electronics.
Recoverable resources count
Many of the materials inside our electronics, including plastic, glass, gold, silver and copper can be reused continuously. By recycling electronics, materials are recovered, recycled and reused — reducing our overall carbon footprint and 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. Important information is stored on our devices, and the security of personal data is an increasing concern.
When electronics are brought to EPRA/Recycle My Electronics, devices are quickly processed, shredded and recycled into small particles to be put back into the manufacturing supply chain.
EPRA/Recycle My Electronics has 57 collection locations across the province. We offer return-to-retail points and authorized drop-off locations in St. John’s including at the Robin Hood Bay Residential Drop Off at 340 East White Hills Road.
