B.C. recycling program expands to accept power tools, exercise machines
Jun 22 2012
The old sewing machine, exercise equipment and power tools clogging up your storage areas can be recycled at community drop-off depots starting July 1.
ElectroRecycle, formerly known as Unplugged, is the only government-approved recycling program for electric household products in B.C.
Categories include kitchen countertop appliances such as blenders, toasters and coffee makers, microwave ovens, floorcleaning appliances, power tools, clocks, irons, fans, hair dryers, sewing machines, exercise machines and electric air fresheners.
ElectroRecycle is funded by a recycling fee on the sale of new electrical products.
Electrical items can be dropped off at Hartland landfill and many area bottle depots.
