A Service Provider in the Thunder Bay area celebrates its 400th trailer load of end of life electronics! Since 2009 approximately 7.5 million pounds of electronic waste has been diverted from landfill in North Western Ontario.
Together with ARTEX Environmental, Cardinal Carter Catholic High School in Aurora collected over 10 tonnes of e-waste for a good cause.
Out of use electronics
are composed of reusable materials like plastics,
rare earth metals and precious metals which can be recycled into materials
and put back into manufacturing. The Earth is reaching out for your help.
"We’ve worked together with OES since 2011 and have redirected in excess of 600,000 lbs of waste electronics from some 10 local landfills in North Eastern Ontario. A win-win situation for everyone!" - Janice LaRocque, Owner, JPL Storage, Haileybury
"I have been a part of the OES Roll Off program since inception. From the beginning, OES staff and myself were on a first name basis, I have known them all to be very helpful. The program itself, has provided the Municipality of West Nipissing with an efficient and reliable end of life management system for old and unwanted electrical and electronic equipment." - Jason Sullivan, Waste Diversion Coordinator, Township of Nipissing
"We are pleased to be a participant in a program that encourages the recycling of items that previously ended up in our landfill and provides us with the opportunity to divert approximately 500 cubic meters of materials on an annual basis." - Bob Moore, Public Works Assistant, Township of Drummond/North Elmsley
