OES-Approved Collectors: Sites & Event Hosts

OES-approved collection partners are a network of sites—private, municipal or non-profit—that agree to accept used or end-of-life electronics for safe, secure recycling throughout Ontario. To participate in the program, sites and events must meet OES’s collection criteria, and accept program materials without excluding any brands.
