On Saturdays until Oct. 15, cash and cheques won’t be the only deposits accepted at select TD Canada Trust branches in B.C.
This Saturday, the Comox branch at 104B-1966 Guthrie Rd. will be the first to accept used electronics for the purpose of recycling them.
It’s part of TD Canada Trust’s E-Recycling Event, making it easy for Canadians to dispose of their old electronics at approximately 50 of its participating branches. Customers and local area residents are encouraged to bring in their old or unwanted electronic and e-waste items to a designated branch to be recycled.
During a successful test pilot program last year at three branches in Edmonton, Vancouver and Burlington, Ont., TD Canada Trust responsibly disposed of and recycled close to 1,500 electronics in three days. The event has now expanded to include close to 50 branches across Canada in five regions – Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia, Quebec and New Brunswick.
Customers and residents can bring common electronics items such as TVs, personal computers and peripherals (mice, laptop, keyboards, and speakers), desktop printers, monitors, cell phones and smartphones, batteries, mp3 players and more. As an added incentive, Canadians who recycle their electronics at the participating branches will be entered in a draw to win a smart car.
