Looking to make a difference in the community? Kanata is not lacking e-waste recycling programs. Rather, like many cities in Canada, residents and businesses in Kanata are simply facing an information gap. Many people and businesses still don't realize the importance of e-waste recycling. Many think it doesn't even matter while many others don't realize programs already exist in the area to take care of your end-of-life electronics responsibly.
Less than 12.5% of the e-waste we produce actually gets recycled. That leaves a massive amount of e-waste being directed to landfills and incinerators every year, and it's taking a toll on our environments and economies across the nation and beyond. All it takes is one city, even one Kanata resident, to make a calculable impact.
Over 90% of the components in the average electronic device can be recovered and used to make new items, whether the plastic gets recycled into a park bench for the local playground or the precious metals are extracted for jewelry or automotive parts. Every item that is recycled means a healthier environment and a stronger economy.
