Environment Canada reports that more than 140,000 metric tons of used electronics were sent to Canadian landfills annually. In addition to causing adverse effects to human health and the Environment, disposing of used electronics in landfills wastes valuable resources such as aluminum and copper.
Working together to develop resource recovery strategies, Environment Canada, Natural Resources Canada and Industry Canada encourage the safe management of obsolete electronic equipment. Physio-Control customers should check with provincial authorities and local municipalities for recycling opportunities.
