GEEP collaborates with Canada’s Big Five banks to host a personal e-waste recycling event in the GTA from October 17th – 19th
In support of Waste Reduction Week, GEEP is pleased to work together with the five major Canadian banks (BMO, CIBC, RBC, Scotiabank and TD) to build awareness and educate consumers and companies alike about the environmental impacts of electronic waste also referred to as e-waste.
The e-waste recycling event, which will run daily from 7:30AM to 3:30PM, October 17th to 19th, provides a great opportunity for people working in the GTA to bring in their personal electronic waste items from home for responsible disposal. There will be three e-waste collection locations: the main lobby of Commerce Court East (21 Melinda St., Toronto), south tower lobby of Royal Bank Plaza (200 Bay St., Toronto), and the Atrium of 100 Consilium Place, Scarborough. E-waste items such as cell phones, computer components (hard drives, monitors, scanners, keyboards, printers, etc.), and home electronics (TVs, radios, CD and DVD players, etc.) are all acceptable materials for electronic recycling. For a full list of acceptable e-waste items for collection, please visit: Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES) – Electronics We Accept.
Waste Reduction Week in Canada, which runs from October 16th to 22nd, is a national environmental campaign that builds awareness around responsible waste management.
