Willowbrook hosting e-waste event

Electronic waste being collected in Langley on Saturday, April 23

Willowbrook Shopping Centre has partnered with Maple Leaf Disposal Ltd. to host a one-day Drive-Up & Drop-Off e-waste event on Saturday, April 23.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the southwest parking lot — between Sears and the Bay — people can drop off any electronic waste.

“Electric waste contain precious metals, glass, plastics and other valuable materials, and re-using them reduces the need to mine or fabricate raw materials,” said Bonney Rempel, a regional director for Bentall Kennedy.

“Rather than just disposing of them, we can reuse and recover this valuable material.”

Everyone that drops off e-waste on Saturday will be entered into a contest for a chance to win an eco-friendly TV, which is valued at more than $1,000.
