At Power up the Planet, we strongly value the well-being of the environment and our community. By refurbishing e-waste for charities and non-profits, and recycling locally, we are upholding these important values.
What We Do
Power up the Planet consists of three key facets:
- We offer an Edmonton dropoff location for electronics
- Screen the electronics we collect
- Refurbish whatever can be used.
Anything that cannot be repaired is recycled via local electronic recycling companies. Lastly, we donate these electronics to charities and non-profits who need them for operations or so they can supply them to the people they help. These services benefit both the environment and the community.
Tasks may include the following (depending on experience and area of interest):
