Donate Used Clothing and Electronics This Week in Mississauga

in

Do you have a house full of old clothing and obsolete electronics that you want to get rid of? Well, now's your chance!

The city of Mississauga is participating in a Partners in Project Green recycling collection drive in support of Waste Reduction Week (Oct. 17-23).

All week long, you're welcome to drop off unwanted clothing and electronics at no charge to Iceland Arena, City Hall, Mississauga Central Library or any one of the city's 11 community centres.

"One of the City's environmental initiatives is to reduce our waste as an organization," said Brenda Osborne, Director of Environment at the City of Mississauga. "This type of program gives employees and residents the opportunity to dispose of items they no longer use, while finding ways to reuse and recycle materials so they don't end up in our landfills."

You can dispose of the following items at the aforementioned drop-off sites:

  • Clothing and textiles, including hats, bags, belts, ties, footwear, bedding, pillows, linens, curtains, sleeping bags and yarn. All clothing items will be donated to the Canadian Diabetes Association's Clothesline Program.
  • Electronic waste, including: laptops, desktop computers, monitors, keyboards/mice, cell phones, electronic accessories, audio and video equipment, network equipment, video game consoles, wires, scanners, cable receivers, portable digital music players, televisions, batteries, fax machines, medical devices, printers, toner and ink cartridges. CDs, DVDs and VHS tapes will not be accepted. All electronic items will be donated to Revolution Recycling.

So, enjoy some fall cleaning while supporting a good cause!
