Give your charity a boost. And old electronics the boot.

Give your charity a boost. And old electronics the boot.

We know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Now there’s Giving Tuesday, kicking off a season of warmth and joy that can lead right into the New Year and the hope of new beginnings.

This year alone, over $120,000 in collection fees were paid out to church groups, shelters, or schools who used the monies to raise support to important local causes—while helping to divert out-of-use electronics from landfill.

This year, Recycle Your Electronics, operated by Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES), is proud to be a Giving Tuesday partner, and encouraging residents and businesses alike to give back by hosting e-waste collection events for fundraising.
