Upper Oakville Shopping Centre recently held their first e-waste event in partnership with Golden Horseshoe Green Tech and electronics recycler Greentec.
“We’ve been talking to Greentec for quite a while and finally decided to have the first event on the weekend of June 17,” Megan Richardson said – manager of the Upper Oakville Shopping Centre.
“It was a huge success. I really was overwhelmed by the tweets and re-tweets we received. I knew it was going to be really successful just because of the amount of interest that it was generating,” said Richardson.
Members of the community were invited to drop off their e-waste and have it disposed of responsibly by Greentec. 54,000 pounds of electronic waste was collected which included old electronics, television sets, computers, printers and ink cartridges.
“The event did really well in Oakville,” said Alicia Stepaniuk, Marketing and Events Coordinator for Greentec.
