About Us:
We looked around at retailers offering gift-cards, online stores offering peanuts and everyone offering to "dispose" of perfectly useful electronics while having zero accountability and giving the customer nothing in return. Our company's founder said "We can do better". Maple Leaf Recycling offers a fair price to the consumer and makes sure all the devices we receive are properly recycled in accordance with OES standards.
We work with Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES) - "a not-for-profit industry organization that oversees the responsible reuse and recycling of waste electronics through a program that includes 600 collection sites and numerous other affiliate sites across the province." so you can be sure we are responsibly recycling your goods (not just shipping them over-seas garbage dumps).
We are a proudly Canadian company. This country is wealthy and resource rich; and it's people are proud of it's beautiful environments; from the salty sea air of the Maritimes to the rolling fields of wheat in the Prairies to the epic mountains of the Rockies. The act of recycling is just one way we can all help maintain the natural world. Whether by separating your cans and papers each week at home or responsibly disposing of electronic products with us.
Not all small electronics are destined for the scrapheap, some can be useful with a generous amount of TLC from professional technicians. Just because you've upgraded to a new, faster, sexier device doesn't mean there isn't some life left in that old Nokia gathering dust in your dresser drawer. Even if the item has a obvious defects (water damage, broken screen, scratched body) it still might get a 2nd lease on life. Even if it can't be resuscitated (it was just your device's "time") companies like ours can make sure the harmful components that make up your electronic device (for example: lead and cadmium) don't make their way into the environment.
We take your privacy seriously, if your device is resold every bit of information is securely erased, and if we send your item to a recycling facility we physically destroy the items hard drive leaving it totally inoperable.

The world tosses away 20-50 million metric tons of electronics every year - only recycling 10% to 18%. Let's try to get those numbers up! Not only will you be helping the planet you might also be helping someone who could use your 2nd-hand products. We're dedicated to making landfills smaller and all of us healthier, one broken or unneeded device at a time.
