Where can I take my microwave for recycling?

The Electrorecycle program, managed by Product Care Association, is a Province wide recycling program that recycles small electrical appliances, including countertop microwaves.  As of October 1, 2011, small appliances can be dropped off for free at a number of designated Electrorecycle depots across the Province.  All items should be returned in a clean state with no food or liquid residue.  Built in or over the range microwaves, however, are not included in this recycling program.  Visit the Electrorecycle website for a list of drop off locations for countertop microwaves, or contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline to find the nearest drop-off location for microwaves of all types.
