Are you wondering what to do with old electronics? Don’t want to put them in the garbage?recycleNB

Coming in the fall of 2016, the New Brunswick government will be starting an electronics recycling program to help prevent old electronics from ending up in the landfill.

Once the program is in place, anyone in New Brunswick, regardless of where you are, will have a location to drop off old electronics to be recycled.

This new program will be an extended producer responsibility program (EPR), meaning the brand owners of electronics covered in the program will be responsible for recycling the devices.
