22 Jan Introducing A New Smoke Alarm Recycling Program for Vancouver Islanders
Island Return It Recycling Centres is pleased to announce that we are now able to accept expired smoke and carbon monoxide alarms for free recycling. Under the AlarmRecycle program we can accept smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms and combination smoke/CO alarms.
The program is funded entirely by the environmental fee applied to the sale of new alarms sold in BC which is why we are able to take them without charging a fee. Typically the fee that you pay at the point of purchase is $1.20 on a new smoke alarm and $0.60 on new CO alarms.
So as with other electronics you’ve already paid the price, now take advantage of the service!
