Town of

East Gwillimbury WASTE MANAGEMENT Electronic Equipment Recycling Many electronic equipment items are accepted for recycling at selected depots (free of charge to York Region residents). Residential quantities only. For more information please call 1-877-464-9675 or visit www.york.ca.

What goes in the Green Bin?

Accepted Items

Food and Food Scraps If you can eat it, it goes in the Green Bin. So does meat, fish bones, shells, fat grease, lard (solidified), small amounts of cooking oil, baking supplies, dairy products, egg shells, coffee filters/ grounds, tea bags, corn cobs/husks and nuts/shells. Soiled or Shredded Paper Shredded paper may be placed in the Green Bin in small amounts. Other paper products included in the Green Bin include: butcher and cheese paper, molded pulp, take out trays, ice cream boxes, microwave popcorn bags, flour and sugar bags, muffin paper, paper cups and plates, paper towels and tissues, paper serviettes, paper candy wrappers and any paper or cardboard that contains food residue (sauce, cheese, etc). Personal Care Items Diapers, hair, nail clippings, sanitary products, incontinence products, and tissues. Pet Products Animal bedding, pet waste, kitty litter, bird seed, pet fur, feathers and sawdust (wood sources only).

• Computers including modems, cables and software (e.g. disks, CDs, DVDs) • Monitors, printers, scanners, electronic games (e.g. Nintendo) • Telephones, cell phones, answering machines, pagers, fax machines • VCRs, DVD players, radios, stereos (no speakers) • Digital cameras, video cameras, automobile “computer” modules

Don’t Ditch Your Drugs Pharmaceuticals that are flushed into our sewage and septic tanks can make their way into our drinking water. Sewage treatment plants can’t remove all pharmaceutical residues, allowing them to pass through into our streams, lakes and rivers. When cleaning out your medicine cabinet, make sure to take care. Most pharmacies take unused and outdated drugs and dispose of them properly. You may also take them to the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Depot. Syringes and needles should be dropped off at select HHW Depots and placed in an approved puncture resistant container. For more information please call 1-877-464-9675.

Recycle Your Dead Batteries! Our cordless world is powered by batteries. But, it doesn’t have to be polluted by them too, as long as they are managed properly. Most types of batteries are made with toxic substances like heavy metals that can pollute clean water sources. Even batteries that aren’t too harmful to the environment should be recycled - reusing their resources and keeping them out of our landfills. Car batteries can contain lead and acid and are extremely toxic and hazardous to handle. Lead is toxic to the brain, kidneys, blood, the immune system and the reproductive system. The type of acid used in car batteries is strong and highly corrosive. Rechargeable batteries, commonly used in power tools, cordless electronics like cell phones and remote control children’s toys contain cadmium, which can cause kidney damage. Many single-use dry cell batteries are now made without mercury, but some types still contain this toxic substance, which can damage the nervous system. Lithium batteries - the small round batteries used in watches and cameras – are less toxic, but should be recycled.
