City Achieved E-Waste Milestone in 2012

For the second year in a row, the City of Peterborough has achieved a milestone in the collection of used electronics. A total of 270,753 kilograms of e-waste was collected at our two facilities in 2012:

  • the Household Hazardous Waste Depot (Pido Road)
  • the Landfill Site (Bensfort Road)

Ontario Electronics Stewardship (OES), which the City partners with for this program, diverted 75,702 tonnes of this material province-wide last year.

OES sends congratulations to the residents of Peterborough for their obvious commitment to sustainability and a green economy.

Keep up the good work Peterborough and continue to recycle your used computers, televisions, cell phones and other electronics, for free, at one of the City’s facilities.
