The new recycling surcharges mean there will be no tipping fees on electronics at Yukon landfills.
We all have them laying around our homes – old televisions, computers, monitors, stereo systems – taking up space and collecting dust.
Since the Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA) Saskatchewan started in 2007, about 25,000 tonnes of old electronics in the province have been collected and recycled by the not-for-profit organization.
According to Gayleen Creelman, program director of EPRA Saskatchewan, that's more than the weight of 150 Statues of Liberty.
"We're thrilled with the uptake from Saskatchewan residents who have been so enthusiastic about the program," she added.
