What would you like to Recycle?

Home Security Cameras

Home Security Cameras
Home secutity cameras are an important part of life for some of us. With fast-paced technology improvements and updates, however, electronics also become out of date much more quickly than other appliances. Currently, Canadians toss more than 140,000 tonnes of electronic waste into landfills each year.

How do I go green?

Reduce

Take a second to decide if you really need that home security system. Crime rates have fallen significantly over the past twenty years. Much of our worry about crime may stem from higher media awareness and an increased emphasis on personal safety over the last decade.

Reuse

Inquire at home security retailers to see if buying a refurbished system is an option.

Recycle

Home security cameras are now part of the Product Stewardship program for electronic waste. They can be taken to a number of drop-off locations throughout the CRD for free for recycling—you already paid for this service with an environmental handling fee (EHF) when you bought it.

  • The Environmental Story

    Reliability is one of the most important things to consider in any type of security system. You need to have a surveillance camera that will protect no matter what, even when it’s raining or snowing. For this reason, purchase only equipment that you know has a good warranty and that is waterproof.

    A Block Watch program is also beneficial.
