Recycling Programs

Lamp and Computer Recycling

Several times a year Algoma Utilities coordinates a hazardous and recyclable materials recycling day. Items such as fluorescent bulbs, ballasts, batteries and computer components are disposed of in an efficient and safe manner.

Algoma Utilities customers may bring fluorescent lamps/bulbs, ballasts and computer components (monitors, CPUs and keyboards) to the Algoma Utilities office from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

All bulbs and ballasts must be boxed, closed and taped to secure the materials. Quantities must be written on the outside of the box. Please have the terminals taped on all batteries. Algoma Utilities reserves the right to deny acceptance of any material. Customers will be charged a disposal fee for the materials they bring in to be recycled. Prices are subject to change.

Recycling dates for 2017 are May 9th and Oct 24th.

Best Buy Recycling Program

This year, consumers will retire more than two million tons of “tech trash” – old cell phones, rechargeable batteries, ink-jet cartridges and more. The good news is that many of the materials in these items can be recycled or refurbished.

Best Buy is one retailer to provide ways for consumers to dispose of electronics safely and easily, in an environmentally friendly way. All Best Buy stores in the U.S. now accept most consumer electronics.
