Beginning September 1, 2020, the Alberta Recycling Management Authority (ARMA) initiated its two-year expanded residential electronics pilot project. Included in the pilot project will be audio visual equipment, telecom, cell phone and wireless devices, electronic gaming equipment, small home appliances, portable power tools, toys, musical instruments, and small solar panels. There will be no charge to recycle these items for the duration of the pilot. With the data that ARMA will gather from this project, they will be able to provide the government with critical information that will help to determine the best course of action to modernize the electronics recycling program for the long term. Please visit https://armaepilot.com/ to learn more about the pilot project.
LRWSC asks that the public keep the expanded electronics recycling items separate from computers, laptops, printers, monitors, and TV's and follow the attendants instructions of where to place these items when bringing to the following sites:
Eckville Transfer Station
Bentley Transfer Station
Prentiss Transfer Station
Alix/Mirror Transfer Station
Please note that this project is for residentially used electronics only, commercial items will not be accepted. Residential Air Conditioner units are only accepted at the Eckville and Prentiss sites and are subject to the current charges and procedures outlined under those sites.
