Electronic waste (e-waste) is a real nuisance. Digital technology is progressing rapidly, and every year, devices become obsolete. Homes may find themselves with dozens of useless cell phones, TV screens, computers, monitors, and other devices. Businesses upgrading their network may find themselves with hundreds or even thousands of outdated machines taking up valuable storage space.
You can’t throw these items into the trash. They contain hazardous materials – and rare metals. How can you ensure your electronics are being disposed of in a safe, responsible manner?
Call Mr. Garbage. We offer friendly, efficient, and affordable e-waste removal in Winnipeg and the surrounding area. By using our services, you’ll get rid of old devices cluttering your home or business – and you’ll be doing your part to protect the environment.
How it works
There are two e-waste removal services we offer: full-service, and self-serve.
With our full junk removal services and e-waste removal, available for both commercial and residential customers, we do everything. That means:
- We remove all of the e-waste from your premises – you tell us where it is, and we get to lifting
- We recycle all of the e-waste
- We customize a plan to suit your needs – our services are available 24/7, so we can work around your schedule
Our self-serve e-waste is an easy way for you to get rid of old electronics without having to drive to a recycling depot. We simply place one of our rental bins near your home or place of business. Place any electronics in the bin – we’ll pick it up and do the rest.
With two options for e-waste removal, we have a service that suits any budget. Looking for more information? Get in touch with us today!
Types of e-waste we remove
Winnipeg is becoming something of a tech hub – that means there’s a lot of different kinds of e-waste. Fortunately, there’s Mr. Garbage! We can handle almost every kind of e-waste, including:
- LCD/LED/Plasma TVs
- Scrap electronics
- Computer equipment
- Gaming consoles
- DVD/VHS players
Have electronics that aren’t on the list? Give us a call – we can probably recycle them for you!
Why you should recycle e-waste
The most important reason to recycle e-waste is to stop toxic materials from entering our environment. Electronics can contain lead and mercury – these metals can leach into our water and harm plant life, animals and humans.
There are a lot of other great reasons to recycle e-waste, too! When you choose Mr. Garbage to recycle your e-waste, you:
- Ensure that sensitive data on your electronics is properly destroyed
- Allow valuable and rare metals like gold and palladium to be reused in new electronics
- Prevent shady recycling companies from gaining access to your information – or from just throwing your e-waste into the trash!
Recycling your e-waste means preserving your security, all while doing your part to protect the environment. We serve Winnipeg and the surrounding area, so if you have e-waste you can’t seem to get rid of, take advantage of our services!
Where electronic waste gets recycled
People who live in and around the City of Winnipeg are lucky – we’ve got a lot of options when it comes to recycling electronics! The easiest way to recycle electronics is to go to one of Winnipeg’s 4R Depots.
At Mr. Garbage, we always recycle everything we can – including e-waste. We’ll often choose a 4R Depot, like the one at Brady, because it allows us to drop off recyclables and dispose of non-recyclable waste all in one go. After all, saving on fuel means saving the environment, too!
We always use Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA) Service Providers for our e-waste removal services. This means all of the recycling practices of our drop-off points have been vetted by experts to ensure that electronics are being recycled ethically. That means no dumping the electronics overseas, and no unethical third parties trying to access your information.
Just good, clean, green recycling.
Why choose us
When you’re recycling electronic waste, you want to make sure the job is being done right. It’s important to follow local by-laws and to use approved recycling depots. You want a company who you know is following the rules to a T – otherwise, you might as well throw your electronics in the dumpster!
Mr. Garbage is locally-owned and founded right here in Winnipeg. We’re not some faceless multinational – your business means absolutely everything to us, and we do all we can to provide you with the best service. We show up on time and ready to work. We’ll get the job done quickly and efficiently, all while treating your space as if it was our own.
If you’ve got a large project that involves both e-waste and regular waste – give us a call. We’ll sort through the e-waste and other recyclables, and ensure that they’re disposed of properly. We always recycle everything we can – together, we can help protect the environment.
So call us today, and get rid of all that electronic junk you don’t need anymore! We serve all of Winnipeg and the surrounding area. No job is too big or too small, so give us a call!
