Electronic Recycling

You can ensure that your end-of-life electronics are disposed of properly.

All residents and businesses in New Brunswick can recycle old electronics FREE OF CHARGE through an EPRA New Brunswick Drop Off Location

In the Grand Lake Area, Minlak has been designated as the drop off location.

Once collected and sorted, items are sent to an EPRA-approved recycling facility to remove substances of concern for proper downstream management. 

All other materials are separated to recover recyclable elements such as metals, plastics and glass so they can be processed into new products.
