Got an old TV? An ancient computer monitor collecting dust?
Then take it to one of Manitoba's 29 e-waste collection depots that open May 1.
A list of e-waste recycling depots is at www.greenmanitoba.ca. Electronic waste can be dropped off at these sites without charge.
The list of items also includes VCRs, stereos, microwaves, phones, computer equipment, laptops, printers, scanners, fax machines and copiers. All e-waste collected is sent for proper end-of-life recycling and no materials are sent to landfills.
Ten of the sites offer year-round collection services. The remaining 19 sites are open to the public until the end of October.
Hazardous waste like paints, solvents, corrosive cleaners, pesticides, batteries and pressurized gas containers can be dropped off at Miller Environmental's Winnipeg depot at 1803 Hekla Ave. in Winnipeg. It's open the first and last Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. from April to September.
