Computation, a Toronto-based computer recycling company, has announced it will host a free recycling and reuse event for computers and other electronics Oct. 16-22, 2017, in Ontario’s capital.

The company says the weeklong event invites the general public to drop off unwanted computer and electronic equipment for recycling. All information present on systems will be securely destroyed, according to Computation.

“Looking for an environmentally sensitive and privacy-ensured method to dispose of your unwanted computer and electronic equipment? Leave it with Computation. We'll see to it that your equipment is processed to the highest standards using our ‘3Rs’ model,” the company says.

The event is free for most types of computer, phone, electronic and audio-video related equipment.

“Every effort will be made to refurbish the equipment placed under our stewardship, remarketing and donating where possible. Irreparable equipment is recycled for its raw materials. All equipment under our management is diverted from landfill and processed locally,” says Computation.

The event will take place at Computation’s facility in Toronto, located at 280 Jane St., from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Pickup service is available by appointment. To set one up, people are asked to email or call 416-910-4358. 

Computation is a computer equipment refurbisher, recycler, IT service provider, camera and Ethernet cable installer serving Canada from facilities in the Greater Toronto and Montreal areas since 2001.
