It is now easier for Prince Albert and area residents to recycle their end-of-life

Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA) Saskatchewan has established a partnership
with Habitat for Humanity in Prince Albert. As of (Date) the ReStore at 911 Marquis Road is an
authorized drop-off location for end-of-life electronics. Moving forward, residents of Prince
Albert and surrounding area have another option when it comes to properly disposing of their
old electronics.
“It’s always exciting when we can add new drop-off locations to the program and expand the
access and convenience for Saskatchewan residents,” said EPRA Saskatchewan Program
Director, Gayleen Creelman. “We are confident that by making it even easier for residents to erecycle
in Prince Albert, we can collect more end-of-life electronics, recycle them safely and
ensure they are kept out of landfills and our beautiful environment.”
For the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Prince Albert, being an EPRA Saskatchewan
authorized drop-off location ensures electronics that are dropped-off are properly recycled, and
enables them to have another revenue stream for the organization as it continues its mission, ‘To
mobilize volunteers and community partners in building affordable housing and promoting
homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty.’ “One great thing about the
ReStore is our ability to divert good usable items from the landfill. This is already happening on
a daily basis. Acting as a drop-off location for EPRA Saskatchewan is a seamless extension for
ReStore, and we’re excited to continue making an impact in our community, only this time,
through e-recycling,” stated John van Leeuwen, ReStore Manager in Prince Albert.
“We are proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity knowing that they are not only playing a
part in the responsible recycling of electronics, but also making an impact on poverty in Prince
Albert,” mentioned Creelman.

On average around 130 metric tonnes of electronic devices are collected annually from Prince
Albert and area residents. With the addition of the Habitat for Humanity ReStore drop-off
location, that number is expected to grow.
The Habitat for Humanity ReStore at 911 Marquis Road is the third drop-off location in Prince
Albert, with the other two being SARCAN depots located at 44 N Industrial Drive and 3865 5th
Avenue E.
