ewaste-recycling-logoYAK IS THE REGION’S E-WASTE DEPOT. Every TV, stereo, computer, or other piece of electronics is traded in and the funds raised help to pay our gas and hydro bills all year round.  It may be a few wires and a monitor to you, but to us, it’s warmth, light, piece of mind and a steady income. THANK YOU!
