Albertans are some of the most dedicated recyclers in the world. In 2015 alone, residents and businesses recycled 846,000 units of computer equipment and TVs. Registered recyclers broke down this e-waste at their approved facilities right here in Alberta, separating it into various metals, glass, and plastic. These recovered commodities were then shipped for manufacturing into new computer components or industrial metal products, to name a few of the end uses for your old electronics.
