Posted by: Deepa on 4/11/02 Title: Recycling Obsolete Computers
Postnum: 61 EntryID:533
Our facility is located in a small town in Orangeville ON. We are looking for a contractor to take our obsolete (mercury containing) computer equipment so that it does not end up in landfill. Local recyclers do not have the facilities or the resources. Can anyone recommend a cost efficient method of disposal? Thank you.

The Ontario Waste Materials Exchange at http://www.owe.org is a free resource that allows you to post under 'Wanted Materials' or 'Available Materials'.

There are some companies looking for obsolete computer equipment/electronics posted under 'wanted materials' that you could look into. You could also post your computer equipment under 'available materials'.

Try a company called EPR in Mississauga, Ontario

Another suggestion for recycling obsolete computers is to consider donating them to places like Day care centres where the kids can use them with some of the older programs.

We at Acid Technologies are also beginning our recycling project for obsolete technologies. We also refurbish and resell/donate as well as recover. Please post replies via email as the website and server are undergoing considerable changes currently. Thank You.

Greetings,

If you are still inquiring about obsolete computers, my company has depot's across Canada that can take the equipment. Usable systems are transfered to a non-profit organization while the others are recycled 100% and in an environmentally friendly way. If there is enough volume we do pay for material.
