Managing our electronic waste
The equipment we provide to our customers is collected, tested, repaired or refurbished, and redeployed. Equipment that can no longer be redeployed is resold or recycled. We have recently partnered with Computers for Success, an organization that refurbishes and distributes computers to schools, libraries, not-for-profit organizations, Indigenous communities and eligible low-income families. By donating office equipment, Cogeco will contribute to delivering improved access to technology for Canadians at risk of digital exclusion.
The weight of e-waste collected has been steadily decreasing, due to the fact that the equipment we provide to customers is more compact and weighs less. This helps to decrease the environmental footprint of our operations.
