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.
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.
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…
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 And cities like Mississauga have the capacity to recycle dozens of office products safely – including your outdated phone systems, photocopiers, and desktop computers.
