UrbanMine_DIL3798Metal Recycling Redefined for Homeowners

Every day we see more and more homeowners becoming “urbanminers”. Scrap metal can be found everywhere – in your garage, basement, shed, cottage or farmyard. It can be found when you’re helping relatives move or at your neighbour’s garage sale. If you’re in the habit of recycling paper and plastic then you’re ready to become an urbanminer for metal, batteries, appliances and electronics. Being an urbanminer helps the environment and makes you money!

eWaste

Most of our eWaste comes from homeowners like you. Electronic waste is a growing concern as it contains hazardous materials that cannot be placed in landfills. As computers and electronics become more affordable for individuals and as offices require the newest and most efficient systems we all see unused electronics piling up. The result is a huge volume of equipment that poses an environmental issue if disposed of irresponsibly. Urbanmine’s Electronic Waste Recycling program is designed to divert hazardous materials contained in electronic waste from entering landfills and water sources. Thanks to Manitoba Government Recycling Programs there is no longer a charge for bringing electronics to a certified drop off depot like urbanmine.
