Earth Day – Electronic Products Recycling Association

Power 97 is proud to support the Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA)!

April 22nd is Earth Day and together with EPRA we encourage you to properly recycle your electronics of the past!

Recoverable resources count:
Many of the resources inside our electronics, including plastic, glass, gold, silver and copper can be reused continuously without losing their properties. By recycling electronics, resources are recovered, recycled and reused — reducing our overall carbon footprint and lessening our dependence on mining for new resources. Recycling with EPRA/Recycle MyElectronics programs also diverts e-waste from illegal export and Canadian landfills.

Safety and security counts:
Responsible recycling ensures the safe and secure destruction of personal data stored on hardware. We all have important information stored on our devices, and the security of our personal data is a valid concern. When you drop off electronics to an EPRA/Recycle My Electronics drop-off point, devices are quickly processed, shredded and recycled into small particles so that they can be put back into the manufacturing supply chain.

Accessibility counts too:
EPRA/Recycle My Electronics programs have a vast network of over 2,500 collection locations across Canada consisting of return-to-retail locations and authorized drop-off points. EPRA/Recycle My Electronics is committed to recycling end-of-life electronics in a responsible manner. In fact, there’s a drop-off location within 30 minutes of most Canadians.

Visit to find a drop-off point closest to you, educational tools for kids and information on the importance of recycling electronics.

Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA) is a not-for-profit, industry-led organization that oversees a government-approved, end-of-life electronics recycling program throughout the country. Residents and businesses can drop off their unwanted electronics free of charge for responsible recycling at any EPRA/Recycle MyElectronics authorized drop-off location.
