Electronics Event Days

The County of Wellington offers seven Electronics Recycling Event Days, one in each municipality, every year. Electronics are accepted at no charge. The County partners with local food banks to collect donations at each event.

Our contractor, Greentec, collects and processes the electronic wastes.  They recover metals, glass and plastics for recycling.  A full list of acceptable items is available on Greentec's website.

In 2014, in addition to diverting 9,242 kg (20,375 lb) of electronic waste, generous participants also donated 183 kg (402 lb) of food and cash to grateful local food banks.

All event days are on Saturdays. They are from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm in the parking lot of the following locations:
