Dell's E-Waste Take Back Event, Sept. 2006
RCO, in partnership with Dell and The Region of Peel, hosted a free computer drop-off day on Saturday, September 30, 2006 at each of the Region’s four community recycling centres. Peel residents had the opportunity to drop off any make or model of computers and peripherals to be reused and recycled.
Peel and RCO staff collected and placed equipment into the bins ready for delivery to the receiving partners – GEEP and Computation – who provided free pick-up, refurbishment and recycling of the collected equipment.
By the time the day wound down, a total of 5 40-yard bins had been filled to the brim with electronics – an estimated 65 tonnes diverted to reuse or recycling.
Total traffic and weights collected per location are shown below:
||Weights Collected (kg)
||395 Chrysler Dr.
||2255 Battleford Rd.
||109 Industrial Rd.
||1795 Quarry Dr.
