Please note that, since moving to 1881 Rogers Road, YAK Youth Services is no longer accepting electronic waste (e-waste). The e-waste recycling program is now being managed by Perth Children’s House – Montessori School, located in the Shoe Factory at 1 Sherbrooke St. E. (our old location). The e-waste drop-off point is a dumpster which can be found along the south side of the building. If you have any questions or require additional information, please call (613) 267-5199.
People are welcome to leave their used electronic appliances in the drop-off bin whenever they please! The bin is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, making it easy and convenient for you to do your part to help protect the environment, while also supporting a local community organization. This drop-off site provides the public with an accessible way of safely recycling these items, as e-waste contains a range of hazardous materials that can negatively impact the environment if not disposed of properly.
While the e-waste bin accepts a large variety of different items, there are some items that cannot be recycled here. Please refer to the following lists when sorting your e-waste prior to dropping it off:
· TVs (and remote controls)
· Desktop and laptop computers (including external monitors)
· Coffee makers
· Air conditioners
· Water coolers
If it came from your kitchen, it can’t be recycled through this e-waste program.
If you have any questions or require additional information, please call (613) 267-5199.
