Where does -IT- go in Ontario?

If you’re curious about how to properly dispose of broken record players, CDs, old phones, laptops, cameras and other electronic waste (e-waste) check this out:  Where does it go? – RecycleYourElectronics.ca.

Just type in your postal code and you’ll see lots of places & events that will properly dispose of e-waste! Some may arrange to pick it up from you, but there might be a small fee.

If you want some other incentives, donate to reBOOT, a registered charity.
$$$ You’ll receive a tax receipt $$$
Plus, you’ll be helping kids/adults who are in need of a computer.

***It’s important to properly dispose of e-waste because the materials used to make the technology are still valuable –even if the electronic is no longer working. ***

Why put lives in danger mining for a material we already have a lot of?  I don’t want that stuff being wasted in landfills! I especially wouldn’t want it leaching into the ground or accidentally finding itself in animals’ bellies :[

 

“Most of the parts – steel, glass, copper, aluminum, plastics and precious metals – can be recovered and made into new products. Also, lots of electronic equipment like computers, printers, and televisions can be reused, further cutting down on waste.” – Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES)

A short stop motion film of a pen-ink drawing I did on glass.

Literally pen ink! I broke old broken pens and blew the excess ink onto a piece of glass. Feels great getting real light-headed and then making arts.

I also used spit, see if you can find my spit blobs in the video!
