Keep Unwanted Electronics Out of Landfill!

Unwanted, broken electronics should never be put in the blue box or garbage. Electronics are hazardous to the environment and most components – steel, glass, copper, aluminum, plastics, and other precious metals – can be recycled into new products.

Electronic equipment in good working condition should be donated to a local charity, such as the Salvation Army Thrift Store or ReStore Markham. Call ahead to confirm if your item is acceptable.

If it no longer works, drop it off at the Markham Household Hazardous Waste Depot.

Thinks before you throw:

  • Protect your privacy! Clear all personal information from computers, cell phones and electronics prior to drop off. The City is not responsible for personal information contained on your electronic devices
  • Remove all batteries from electronic items and drop off at any Recycling Depot
