Municipalities

Electronic waste is a concern for both rural and urban municipalities. There are many reasons for municipalities to want to keep old electronics out of their landfills and waste transfer stations:

  • Old electronics have components that, over long periods of time, leach substances of concern into the ground contaminating soil and water.
  • Old electronics take up valuable space in landfills and waste transfer stations.
  • Keeping recyclables out of landfills extends their lifespan dramatically.
  • Community residents are conscious of environmental issues and desire responsible options to recycle their old products.
  • Valuable materials in old electronic products are wasted instead of being recycled in a responsible manner.

EPRA Saskatchewan can provide promotional tools for communicating proper end-of-life electronics recycling to residents such as:

  • Dumpster Stickers
  • Landfill Signs
  • Web Banners
  • Newspaper/Newsletter/Mail-out Ad
  • Handouts & Brochures
