Disposing of “e-waste” (computers and other electronic equipment) can be a big pain. The Region of Waterloo offers some alternatives. The first suggestion costs money, there are a handful of brand specific options, and the last option is to “arrange with other e-waste recyclers/refurbishers”.

One such e-waste recycler is The Computer Recycling Depot, a certified member of the Ontario Electronic Stewardship, is located just across the street from the Waterloo landfill site on the property of the History Hergott Ciderr Mill. They allow you to drop off an unlimited amount of phase 1 e-waste for free such as:

  • Desktop computers
  • Portable computers
  • Computer peripherals
  • Monitors
  • Televisions
  • Printing devices

Learn more about The Computer Recycling Depot at their website including hours of operation and information about their pick up program!
