Diverting electronic waste from the landfill.
The Lesser Slave Regional Waste Management Services Commission is part of an expanded electronics pilot project to help protect our environment by keeping more electronic equipment out of the regional landfill.
As part of this pilot project, the Commission seeks to help divert tonnes of electronics from the landfill while adding jobs and positive economic impact to Alberta.
Recyclable electronics include audio visual equipment, telecom, cell phone and wireless devices, electronic gaming equipment, small home appliances, portable power tools, toys, musical instruments and solar panels.
All transfer stations and the Slave Lake Landfill now have dedicated bins to collect these types of electronic waste.
