Why does Ontario need a WEEE diversion plan?

0

An estimated 91,000 tonnes of WEEE is generated each year in Ontario. About one-quarter of it is recovered for recycling. However, most of it goes to landfill or is exported to unknown oversea locations. This program will encourage great diversion of these materials through reuse as well as safe, environmentally-sound recycling of the various components. Many electronic products contain valuable materials that can be recovered and put back into the manufacture of the next generation of electronics, helping conserve natural resources such as copper and steel. This process requires a significant commitment to safe and proper collection, transportation, management and, when necessary, diversion of these products.
