The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) was pleased to partner with Eco-Train to eliminate plastic and electronic waste from the wireless industry in Canada.  Eco-Train recently dropped off products collected through their Phone Case Recovery program to ERA’s Vancouver depot.

Eco-Train’s Phone Case Recovery boxes are provided to retailers to collect old, unwanted devices and accessories from the public, so customers will no longer put them in the garbage when they are done with them. 

The program is accepting the following devices and accessories.

  • Phones, tablets and smart-watches
  • Phone and tablet protective cases
  • Data cables, chargers and mounts
  • Screen protectors/screen protector trays
  • Bluetooth products (earbuds and speakers)
  • Wired earbuds
  • Batteries
  • Tracking devices (Apple AirTags/Tiles)
