Recycling Your E-Waste in Coquitlam

What does Coquitlam’s booming economy spell for e-waste in the future?

Coquitlam is flourishing. Recently completed infrastructure improvements like the city’s rapid transport systems and other public amenities have made this Vancouver suburb attractive to local and foreign investment. Coquitlam pioneered local dark-fiber commercial enterprise. It was one of the first cities linking residents and businesses to virtually unlimited connectivity and bandwidth.
With the population expected to nearly double within the next 20 years, the local government continues to attract new businesses to the area. Needless to say, Coquitlam’s e-waste production is expected to follow along that uptick as well.
