With technology constantly evolving, E-Waste (electronic waste) is a growing concern. 10 years from now everyone will have old iPads and iPhones that need to be disposed.
The province realizes this and is making a push to offer more E-Waste depots for consumers to drop off old gadgets and computers.
Starting May 1, 2010, there will be 29 e-waste depots around the province. Ten of them will offer year-round services.
