E-Waste / White goods
What to do with it?
Raven Recycling accepts all sorts of e-waste and white goods for recycling. Some of these items qualify for use in the Computers for Schools Program. Items collected are given to them for certified data destruction. They are then refurbished and given out to schools and non-profit organizations.
Raven pays for lead-acid car batteries! Visit the Raven Metals page for more information on what other metals we purchase.
Most anything with a cord can be sent out for recycling but this costs Raven, so we must charge a tipping fee just as the landfill does.
Changes are being proposed to the Yukon Designated Materials Regulation (DMR) that will charge up-front fees on electronics and electrical products to cover the cost of collecting and recycling these items. For more information visit our DMR page.
