The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

More than 3,000 met­ric tonnes of un­wanted elec­tron­ics have been re­cy­cled in Prince Ed­ward Is­land over the last five years. Cliff Hack­ing, pres­i­dent of the Elec­tronic Prod­ucts Re­cy­cling As­so­ci­a­tion, says that's ap­prox­i­mately 465,000 TVs, com­put­ers, print­ers and other elec­tronic de­vices di­verted from land­fills. He says the re­cy­cling also yields a host of valu­able ma­te­ri­als such as steel, cop­per, and sil­ver.
