Some of the accepted e-waste includes mobile phones, keyboards, cameras, computer mice and cords. Mobile phone and camera batteries must remain in their device.
Items the size of a laptop and larger are not accepted through the Recycling Hub program due to size constraints. These bigger e-waste items are accepted at the Waste Transfer Station.

Residents can donate small e-waste to Sam’s Spares – a charity run by Sam, an 18-year-old Autistic man with Tourette Syndrome, who saves unwanted e-waste from landfill by repairing and rebuilding them. Note that a fee applies for non-residents.
To help Sam collect e-waste, we’ve added a new collection point at the Waste Transfer Station. Sam accepts laptops, desktop computers, monitors, keyboards and mice, mobile phones, tablets, games systems and/or accessories, laptop power cables and computer parts.
