Dispose of e-waste at E-roundup event

Participate in the City’s E-roundup event on Saturday, June 16, and bring your e-waste/unwanted electronics to the Agrena parking lot from 9 a.m.–1 p.m. Shanked Computer Recycling will be on-site accepting e-waste as part of Alberta’s Electronics Recycling Program.

All hard drives, electronic devices and sensitive information will be taken to a Shanked Computer Recycling facility and destroyed through an e-shredding process. Once this shredding is complete, each unit will be carefully separated into piles of metal, plastic and glass, and recycled to make new products.

This event is being sponsored by the Alberta Recycling Management Authority. For more information about the E-roundup event, please call 780-962-7634 or send email.

Why should I recycle e-waste?

It is important to dispose of e-waste properly because of the hazardous materials used to manufacture them. Even the most common electronics are made of substances like lead, mercury, cadmium and barium. When e-waste is disposed of improperly, these toxic substances can be extremely harmful to our health and the environment.

Electronic products that will be accepted:

  • Televisions and monitors
  • Computer equipment, including:
    • CPUs and servers
    • Mouse, keyboard, cables and speakers
    • Laptop, tablet and notebook computers
    • Printers, photocopiers and scanners
    • Fax machines (standalone or combination units up to 1,000 kg)
  • Batteries
  • Camcorders
  • DVD players, VCRs
  • Microwaves
  • Projectors
  • Toner

What if I cannot bring my items to the E-roundup event?

E-waste/electronics is accepted at the Eco Centre, located at 50 Diamond Ave., year-round. You can bring your items to the Eco Centre at any point during their regular hours of operation, free of charge.
