Innisfil e-Waste Collection Expanded

Innisfil residents (and Essa residents) can now find more convenient locations to recycle their e-waste, which includes most types of electrical and electronic equipment. Bright yellow drop bins for recycled items are located in parking lots at:

  • Alcona: Home Hardware
  • Barclay: Innisfil Recreational Complex
  • Cookstown: Innisfil Public Library
  • Lefroy: Daisy Mart
  • Stroud: Innisfil Recreation Centre Arena

The program known as Electronic Recycling Solutions (ERS) is run by Innisfil resident, John Hurd. A press report said the company collected 28,000 lbs. of recycled items in four months from 2 bins on Town property.

The Township of Essa has also agreed to a six-month pilot program with ERS. Two e-waste collection locations in Essa are in the parking lot of the Thornton Arena, and in Angus at Mill Street at Fraser Street.

Collected items are recycled at GEEP in Barrie. If you’re in the market for electronics but on a limited budget, the GEEP website says they retail and wholesale some refurbished electronics.
