Electronic waste

The City of Ottawa does not collect electronic waste or e-waste as part of its curb-side garbage collection.

E-waste accounts for 3000 tonnes or about 300 garbage trucks full of refuse added to our landfills each year. Much of this e-waste consists of steel, glass, copper, aluminum, plastics and precious metals that can be recycled and reused.

These items can be dropped off at participating retailers. Find out where you can return your electronics, by using the Waste Explorer, by visiting recycleyourelectronics.ca or dropping them off at any e-waste depot listed below.  These e-waste depots are run and operated by local businesses and charitable organizations.

The following items will not be picked up curbside:

  • Televisions
  • Desktop computers and terminals
  • Monitors
  • Laptop computers
  • Desktop printers
  • Fax machines
  • Disk drives
  • CD-ROM drives
  • Keyboards and mice
