Albertans are some of the most dedicated recyclers in the world. In 2016 alone, residents and businesses recycled 760,000 units of computer equipment and TVs. Registered Processors (recyclers) broke down this material at their approved facilities right here in Alberta, separating it into various metals, glass, and plastic. These recovered commodities were then shipped for manufacturing into new computer components or industrial metal products, to name a few of the end uses for your old electronics.
The environmental fees Albertans pay when purchasing new electronics helps fund the cost to recycle them...
