Certified Electronics Recycling in Mississauga

Not all electronics recyclers are created equal. Unfortunately, there are a lot of “recyclers” in our industry that don’t do what they say they are going to do. What is someone in Mississauga looking to dispose of their obsolete Dell computers, Apple iPhones or Panasonic displays to do? How can you know you’ve chosen the right recycler to handle your sensitive data? The answer is to ensure your chosen recycler has the right certifications.

R2 – a globally recognized standard for electronics recycler. Recyclers (like Revolution) who are R2 certified have been audited to ensure compliance when it comes to data handling, asset resale, and end-of-life recycling. If you’re chosen recycler in Mississauga isn’t R2 certified, be concerned. Learn more about our certifications.

Did you know?

With more than 7,134,430 lbs of e-waste being generated in Mississauga annually, it is critical that your electronics are recycled in a safe and efficient manner.

  • The average CRT TV contains 5kg of lead – which can leach into ground water and cause neurological delays in children.
  • It’s not all bad though - E-waste is 100% recyclable and contains precious metals such as gold, silver and palladium.
  • Flat screen devices like LCD monitors and TVs contain mercury which contaminates water and accumulates in the environment.
  • Revolution ensures that these contaminants do not effect the environment by recycling your e-waste safely.

Recycling E-Waste in Mississauga

From life sciences to the aerospace industry, Mississauga’s 86,000 businesses are as diverse as they are progressive. But many local companies continue to dispose of their end-of-life electronics (e-waste) the wrong way because they’re unaware that safe and effective recycling options exist.

According to the OES (Ontario Electronic Stewardship), unwanted electronics represent the fastest-growing portion of our solid waste stream. But the good news is that some 90% of electronic component parts – like glass, plastics, and precious metals - can be recovered, reused, and made into new products.

Recycling your business e-waste correctly…

  • keeps it out of Peel Region landfills,
  • prevents it from being handled unsafely or exported illegally, and
  • helps move it back into the manufacturing supply chain

Some 60,000 metric tonnes of electronics were recycled in Ontario in 2016. And cities like Mississauga have the capacity to recycle dozens of office products safely – including your outdated phone systems, photocopiers, and desktop computers.
