Recycling Program for Electronics Cell Phones & Printer Cartridges

Important Notice

Thank you very much for your support and participation with the Ready Set Recycle initiative in Atlantic Canada. With your assistance, over the past 3 years we have successfully diverted over 35,000 printer cartridges and small electronics from entering landfills. This equates to thousands of tons of fewer emissions and saved resources.

We regret to inform you that the organization will be relocating outside of Atlantic Canada and therefore will be discontinuing operations. Your support and involvement has been crucial to the success of our recycling efforts and we look forwards to reengaging your organization in future opportunities. By the beginning of March all collections bins will be picked up. Please inform patrons this news if they ask of it. There is a possibility of the program becoming viable again in the future; if that time comes we would value the opportunity to work together again.

Again, thank you for the great relationship we have shared and we look forward to being in contact soon.

Making the Most of Recycling

Please do your best to treat items carefully to help us efficiently recycle them. The better the condition the more likely it can be refurbished and put back in use which helps reduce the amount of natural resources we use. Thanks for your help!
