Electronics Recycling at the REAL Deal Site

The REAL Deal is an official Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA) collection site for electronics waste. Unusable or outdated electronics you wish to discard are accepted free of charge.

e-wasteNow, in addition to electronic items, other electric items are accepted.  But there are exceptions!   No “white goods” (washers, stoves etc.), appliances containing freon (such as refrigerators), or vacuum cleaners  will be taken.  See list of the electronics accepted

Materials accepted:   amplifiers, audio visual players, camera, cell phones, computers and peripherals (keyboards, mice, memory cards etc.), copiers, desktop computers, digital cameras, fax machines, monitors, pagers and PDAs, portable computers, printers, radios, receivers, scanners, speakers, telephones and answering machines, tuners, turntables, televisions and video projectors.

Please note:

  • materials will be accepted during REAL Deal store hours only
  • we cannot resell computer components brought in by other residents
  • if your item works, and you would prefer it be available for purchase, you will be asked to sign a waiver allowing us to do so.
  • if you are donating several electronic items, one waiver will suffice.
  • we are unable to accept devices over 50 kgs (e.g. really large screen TVs) as we do not have the equipment to move them safely.
  • our depot is intended for residential e-waste.  If you have a large quantity from a business or institution, please look for other options. 

REAL Deal Staff will be enforcing these guidelines to maintain our agreement with EPRA. Some questions answered.
