The City of Toronto is now expanding services for buildings to make it even easier for residents to get rid of unwanted electronics and ensure these items are recycled and kept out of landfill sites.
To help with our efforts to increase recycling at the building the City has provided free electronic waste containers (E-boxes) for use which will be placed in the recycling room located in the lobby. E-boxes are lime green and they will be used to collect
Small electronic items can be recycled in the lime green bins, including cell phones, home phones, laptops, computer cables and accessories, keyboards, VCR/DVD players, hand-held computers, pagers, radios, cameras and video recorders.
Large items, please contact the Superintendent (416-846-8797) for drop off information, including desktop monitors, printers, scanners and modems, copiers, typewriters, fax machines, televisions, stereos, receivers and speakers.
Remember to protect your privacy and clear all personal information from computers, cell phones and electronics prior to disposal. For more information visit http://www.toronto.ca/garbage/multi.
In the upcoming weeks, The Lofts will be rolling out the Green Bin Program. This program will divert some of your household garbage to green waste which will save the corporation approximately 40% in waste levy fee.
If we all pitch in and reduce and recycle as much as possible, we can save money and contribute to protecting the environment.
