About the E-waste Program

The E-waste program at the Venture Recycling Depot is a community partnership that provides a designated collection site for the public to dispose of electronic items they no longer require and are considered "end of life". It is one of Venture Training's therapeutic training programs where participants earn a honorarium, learn job and safety skills while contributing to their community

Our participants and staff will wrap items delivered to our site, arrange for processing and have the items recycled in a safe and environmentally sound manner, thereby keeping recyclable materials out of our landfills
