New Location for Electronics Recycling

The Youth Live Enviro-Depot at 947 Mitchell St. is now accepting a wide variety of electronic devices. See recycleMyelectronics.ca/ns for a complete list. Dropping off your electronics at this location supports the Youth Live program which provides hands-on work experience for at risk youth.
