Originally settled as a Metis community, St. Albert is today the second-largest city in Edmonton’s metro area.

As of 2021, about 80% of households in Canada had at least one computer, according to Statistics Canada. This is a dramatic increase over previous years, and is only likely to grow as internet access becomes necessary for education and work as well as entertainment. Recycling laptops, desktop computers, and accessories like scanners, monitors, keyboards, and mice allows for the metals, glass, and other materials used in them to be recovered and reused, rather than becoming sources of toxic waste in landfills.
The average smartphone user upgrades their device every two years. Unfortunately, old and broken phones are often thrown away, allowing toxic chemicals from their built-in lithium batteries to be released into the environment and wasting the valuable metals used to build them. We help St. Albert residents get rid of unwanted cell phones the right way.
A business’ electronics waste recycling needs are different from those of an individual. They often have larger items to dispose of, like commercial photocopiers or manufacturing equipment.

When you recycle electronics, you want to know you’re making a difference in protecting the earth and environment.
