Ontario Electronics Stewardship Program

Who They Are: The OES is an industry-led, not-for-profit organization that operates the regulated recycling program in Ontario.  They ensure that end-of-life electronics are handled in a safe, secure, and environmentally-sound manner.

 

Fact: 67 million devices have been diverted from landfill since their program started in 2009.

 

Accepted Electronics: Display devices, Non-cellular telephones and answering machines, Desktop computers, Portable computers, Computer peripherals, Desktop printers, Personal/portable Audio/Video Systems, Home Audio/video systems, Home theatre in-a-box systems, Floor standing photocopiers/multi-function devices, Vehicle Audio/Video systems, Cellular devices.

 

Get Involved:

Drop off your end-of-life electronics at an OES authorized collection depot and at special collection events.  In fact 96.5% of Ontarians are within 10km of a collection depot.  Trinity United Church will be hosting a special collection event the week of October 16 – 20, 2018, as part of their Autumn Rummage Sale. The collection bin will be in the church parking lot at 230 Barber Avenue North.  Volunteers will be on hand to assist the unloading of the electronics.

 

When you bring your old, unusable electronics to OES collection sites, you’re helping to:

  • Keep end-of-life electronics out of landfills
  • Prevent them from being illegally exported or handled by irresponsible recyclers
  • You’re helping to recover and recycle valuable resources that can be put back into the manufacturing supply chain

Next Step: The end-of-life electronics are then sent to audited and approved specialized recyclers for processing.  New technology is used to break down old technology and harvest the raw materials that went into them including glass, plastics, and precious metals like gold and copper.  Substances of concern like mercury and lead, are also handled responsibly to protect both the environment, and the health and safety of the workers handling them.  The recovered materials are then put back into the manufacturing supply chain and used to make new products.

 

 

Questions: Contact Trinity United Church Office at 519-291-3460 or email: trinityunited@wightman.ca

 

Using and enjoying electronics today, also means responsibly recycling them for a cleaner tomorrow.  Spread the word, and help protect our environment.
