Computer firm holds annual e-waste drop-off event
TORONTO, ONT-Again this year, to mark Waste Reduction Week Canada (October 16-22, 2006), the Toronto-based IT firm Computation is inviting the general public to drop off unwanted computer equipment free of charge for recycling. (The company notes, however, that a $10-per-unit charge will apply to non-working monitors.) Computation serves the Greater Toronto and Montreal Areas, providing IT services and computer equipment refurbishing and recycling. Drop-off is available at the Toronto facility, 2444 Bloor St West (rear entrance), from 10:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. on weekends; pick-up by company staff can also be arranged. All information present on computer systems will be securely destroyed. Every effort will be made to refurbish the equipment received and to re-sell and donate where possible. Equipment that cannot be repaired is recycled for its raw materials. Inquiries about the Montreal event or about larger quantities or drop-offs by organizations or businesses should be directed to Dennis Maslo at Computation, 416/629-5667 or 1-866-910-4358 (Quebec only), E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, Web site www.computation.to.
