Click Image To See Accepted Products
Program Starts Oct. 1 In British Columbia

Starting October 1, 2011 BC residents will be able to discard unwanted small appliances without charge at the Nanaimo Recycling Exchange and the Nanaimo Bottle Depot locations.

The new program 'Unplugged' is a non profit organization aiming at keeping unwanted appliances out of the landfill and directing them back into the recycling stream. While there is not charge for dropping off your small appliances as of Oct. 1 there will be a new fee levied at the point of sale when you purchase a new small appliance in the future. We are told this is a fee and not a tax.

Basically the program will accept 120 different small appliances which are powered by either 12 volt or 120 volt power supply which are either plugged in or run by battery power. The see exactly what small appliances are accepted, click on the above image to visit the Unplugged website.
