EPRA-Quebec, which says it has recovered more than 175,000 tons of electronic devices since its founding 10 years ago, points out that 65% of Quebecers still have at least one electronic product in their homes that they no longer use. . Their recovery will allow the appropriate treatment of substances harmful to the environment, the protection of non-renewable natural resources and the manufacture of new devices. It is also possible to return electronic devices to one of the approximately 1,000 drop-off points listed on the ARPE-Québec website.
