Recycling electronics in South Dundas

South Dundas Councillor Archie Mellan raised the issue of recycling needs in South Dundas at the March 6th council meeting.

“There’s no place in South Dundas for electronics recycling,” said Mellan. He said that Manager for Public Works, Hugh Garlough, told him that “a few years ago we had an agreement with the House of Lazarus.”

According to Mellan, the original agreement was terminated because of logistical issues. 

Mellan said the current issue is finding a safe location for drop-offs and ensuring that the items are not thrown around and damaged. The electronics are not recyclable if they’ve been damaged. There is a difference between ‘broken’ and ‘damaged.’

It was asked that staff “come back with something on this.”
