Whether you live in Ontario, elsewhere in Canada, in the United States, or elsewhere in the World, join in the crusade and Pledge to reduce your electronic waste by:

  1. Selling it - Your best option if have replaced something electronic that is still usable
  2. Gifting it - Another great option, allow someone who will use your old electronics the opportunity
  3. Donating it - Allow a charity or another good cause to benefit and provide your older operational electronics
  4. Recycling it - the last "good" option, if your electronics cannot be re-used in its entirety, allow its components to be recycled.

I was the 4,176th person to sign this pledge, and I will make a conscious effort to Sell/Gift/Donate or Recycle any electronics that I use in my home or in my work. Join the Pledge Here!

I want to do "MORE", so I am also trying to "Spread the Word"

If you are thinking of hosting a Fundraising Event in Ontario, Consider Recycling Electronics, for every tonne of electronic that are collected, recycleyourelectronics.ca will give you between $185 and $235. For more information, click here
