Electronics Recycling

In an effort to keep hazardous chemicals out of our landfills the Nova Scotia government has banned electronics from garbage. Instead end–of–life electronics are recyclable through a network of drop off depots across the province.

The following items can be dropped–off for recycling at an EPRA location:

  • Televisions
  • Desktop, laptop and notebook computers — includes CPUs, keyboards, mice, cables and other components in the computer
  • Computer monitors
  • Printers, fax machines and scanners
  • Audio and video playback and recording systems — includes VCRs, DVD players, speakers, MP3 players, radios, cameras, etc.
  • Telephones and answering machines

Drop-Off Locations:
