Operation Recycling Day

As the only copper smelter in Canada, we play a leading role in the recycling of end-of-life electronic equipment.

For 15 years now, we have been inviting people to bring us their old obsolete electrical and electronic devices during our Operation Recycling Day so that they can be recycled properly.

This day is an opportunity for us to inform the public about the copper and precious metals recycling activities of the smelter and about the progress made on the environmental plan. To find out which items are accepted, see the Recycling depot section.

Operation Recycling Day is back for a 16th edition!

Operation Recycling Day is back this year! During this event, citizens are invited to dispose of their obsolete electronic devices and small electrical appliances while learning more about our operations and our projects to improveme our environmental record.
