Timeline for Completion: Ongoing Annual Events
The City of Ottawa does not collect electronic waste (e-waste) as part of its curbside garbage collection.
E-waste accounts for 3000 tonnes or about 300 garbage trucks full of refuse added to our landfills each year. Much of this e-waste consists of steel, glass, copper, aluminum, plastics and precious metals that can be recycled and reused.
Drop these off at participating retailers. Find out where you can return your electronics, by using the Waste Explorer, or by visiting recycleyourelectronics.ca (link is external) or drop them off at any e-waste depot listed below. Local businesses and charitable organizations run and operate these e-waste depots.
