We will continue to accept e-waste at 1 Sherbrooke St. E. until November 2021, at which time The Perth Children’s House will take over – please note the collection bin will still be at 1 Sherbrooke St. E, however, the location of the bin will change – we will keep you posted on the new location, as soon as we hear more from them.
Electronic Waste (E-Waste) contains a range of hazardous material; if these items are sent to the landfill the toxic substances found within them will negatively affect and contaminate the environment. At our old location on Sherbrooke St.E in Perth, we accept E-Waste and ensure it’s proper disposal. By bringing your E-Waste to us, you not only help save the environment; you also help us with our heat and hydro costs. With every full bin, we are able to sell them to Redi-Recycling and return a small profit.
YAK accepts Electronic Waste 24/7 please place items in the black bin outside 1 Sherbrooke St. E.
We ACCEPT: TVs (and remote controls), & Computers (monitors, printers, laptops).
We DO NOT ACCEPT: Batteries, Coffee Makers, Microwaves, Fridges, Toasters, Vacuums, Air conditioners or Water Coolers.
Please note: if it came from your kitchen, we can’t recycle it through this program.
