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, SIMS Recycling Solutions collects and processes the electronic wastes. SIMS adheres to the highest standards in data security and destruction, environmental sustainability, reuse and recycling.  Note, these items are NOT accepted as e-waste.

In 2013, in addition to diverting 13,609 kg (30,002 lb) of electronic waste, generous participants also donated food and cash to grateful local food banks.
