Electronic devices are composed of reusable materials like plastic and precious metals which can be recycled and put back into manufacturing.
If you are looking to get rid of old computers, televisions, cell phones, stereos or other electronic device, you can drop them at the e-Waste Depot located at the Kemptville Youth Centre – 5 Oxford St. W., Kemptville. Hours for drop-off are Monday to Friday from 2 to 6 p.m. The phone number is 613-258-5212. Click here to view the address on Google Maps. A complete list of items that can be recycled is available here.
The Municipality of North Grenville also runs a free drop-off battery recycling program in conjunction with Raw Materials Company Inc. (RMC). RMC recycles over 95% of the components found in dead batteries. All of the components are put back into energy production, eliminating the need to mine for more of these precious materials. Recycling Drums for the batteries can be found at the following drop off locations:
- Oxford Mills Waste Transfer Station – 699 Crozier Road, Oxford Mills
- North Grenville Public Library – 1 Water St, Kemptville
- North Grenville Municipal Centre (arena lobby & 2nd floor Reception) – 285 County Rd. 44
- Kemptville Fire Station #1 – 259 County Rd. 44
