What do i do with my old electronics?

Here are some ways to keep old electronics out of the landfill:

  • Resell – by posting to an online classifieds platform
  • Donate – to a local charity or resale locations
  • Drop-off – to an electronics recycling bin, free of charge, at County Waste Drop-off locations

This material is also acceptable in the County’s bulky collection program, fees and conditions apply. Click here to learn more.
The annual curbside collection event has been discontinued.

Still don’t know where things go?

How to I prepare my electronics for collection?

Follow these guidelines to ensure your electronics are collected:

  • Delete all personal data. The County of Simcoe will not be responsible for personal information contained on computer hard drives, motherboards or other electronic devices that may potentially store information
  • Place sealed, clear bags and larger, loose items at the curb 2 feet from carts or other objects
  • Electronics collection coincides with your regular collection day but it will be a different truck collecting your electronics
  • There is no limit however each bag/item should not exceed 20 kgs

*NEW – In an effort to reduce waste, blue electronics bags will not be mailed out in 2024. Those who participate in electronics collection may use clear bags. The County reserves the right to refuse collection​ if improperly set-out or over-weight items.

What happens to the electronics after collection?

The material is collected, consolidated and shipped to a local, approved electronics recycling facility.
