Electronic waste (e-waste) items such as televisions, computers, cameras, video game consoles, printers, and DVD players are not collected through regular curbside pick-up and do not belong in the garbage or blue box. Electronic waste items can contain valuable resources and hazardous materials that need to be recycled, reused, or disposed of responsibly.
Every year, the Township of King Community Services Department hosts a series of Community Electronic Recycling events at various Township facilities to encourage residents to properly dispose of their e-waste for free. In addition, electronic waste can be dropped off at select York Region Waste Depots for proper disposal.
Items Accepted at Community Electronic Recycling Events
Televisions, monitors, desk tops, phones, printing, copying and scanning equipment, stereos, speakers, digital media, video game consoles, projectors, microphones, cameras, calculators, lighting, power tools, small appliances, stationary and portable audio/video systems.
Please protect your privacy by clearing all personal data and removing batteries from e-waste items prior to dropping them off. For more information on how to wipe your device Click Here
