Recycle My ElectronicsTM

CRE de Laval is an official EPRA-Québec drop-off point for the Recycle My ElectronicsTM program. Citizens and businesses can bring their old and broken electronics, therefore preventing them from ending in landfills, allowing them to be recycled and disposed of safely and responsibly.

 

In 2019, a total of 206 Laval citizens used the drop-off point, which is a substantial increase of ridership of about 28,5% in comparison to 2018 (160 users). Thus our drop-off point diverted 4 080,97 kilograms of electronics from landfills.
