E-Waste accepted free of charge

Electronic waste or "e-waste" is a waste type consisting of any broken or unwanted electrical or electronic device, such as computers, entertainment devices, mobile phones, and other items. Recyclable electronic waste is sometimes further categorized as a commodity while electronics which cannot be reused are distinguished as "e-waste".

Rapid technology change, low initial cost, and planned obsolescence have resulted in a fast growing problem around the globe. E-waste has raised concern because many components of such equipment are considered toxic and are not biodegradable. If treated properly, electronic waste is a valuable source for secondary raw materials. However, if not treated properly, it is a major source of toxins and carcinogens.

Paint Products accepted free of charge

Paint is considered hazardous waste and should not be disposed of with regular garbage. Many paints contain toxic heavy metals such as cadmium or lead. Latex paints contain fewer toxic substances than oil-based paints, and do not require solvents for thinning and clean up, however they can still be hazardous.

Paints and finishes release low level toxic emissions into the air for years after application. The source of these toxins is a variety of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that until recently were essential to the performance of the paint. New environmental regulations, and consumer demand, have led to the development of low-VOC and zero-VOC paints and finishes.

Paint consumers, including homeowners and businesses, can drop off leftover household paint free of charge. This program is operated by Product Care Association on behalf of the paint manufacturers and retailers in Newfoundland & Labrador and overseen by MMSB.
