Recycling Direct

Passion For Our Planet
Samsung Canada would like to help Canadians live greener by offering products that are eco-friendly from start to finish. And when you're ready to upgrade your electronics, you can use our Recycling DirectTM program to easily recycle your old devices in a socially and environmentally responsible way.
ABOUT
We're helping Canadians live a more eco-friendly lifestyle.

When you drop off your old electronics at the following locations, it will be taken to the facilities of Global Electric Electronic Processing (GEEP) - our recycling partner. Once there, plastics, glass and hazardous materials (like cathode ray tubes) are removed. Devices are then broken apart by a machine that smashes them using the equivalent force of a 10-story drop. The pieces are then sorted by hand

10-story drop. The pieces are then sorted by hand and machines to extract as many different materials as possible. Plastics are recycled or converted into diesel fuel; metals like copper and iron can be re-used to make pipes and wire; cardboard is shredded and recycled. Almost everything is recycled and re-purposed.

Samsung Recycling DirectTM accepts all Samsung-branded consumer electronics sold in Canada, ranging from televisions, DVD and VHS players, audio equipment and home theatre systems, to mobile phones, cameras, camcorders, computer monitors, printers, and peripherals. This includes non-Samsung-branded consumer electronics in the same categories, which will be accepted for a nominal fee.

Who are Samsung's business partners?

Global Electric Electronic Processing (GEEP) is Samsung Canada's recycling partner with facilities in Barrie, Ontario, and Edmonton, Alberta. GEEP is an industry leader for electronic recycling in Canada, with state-of-the-art recycling facilities.

How does Samsung Recycling DirectTM work?

Samsung Recycling DirectTM provides a convenient way for consumers to recycle their old electronics in an environmentally and socially conscious way. There are e-ColleX locations across Canada, which are maintained by our partner, Global Electric Electronic Processing (GEEP). Consumers will not have to pay a fee when they drop off their Samsung-branded consumer electronics for recycling. Non-Samsung-branded consumer electronics will be accepted for a nominal fee paid directly to Samsung's contracted recycling partner upon delivery of the e-waste. Find a location near you.

Who is Samsung's recycling partner, and how does Samsung ensure that its recycling partner lawfully processes and disposes of consumer electronics?

Samsung Canada conducted extensive research into the qualifications, capabilities, and integrity of our potential recycling partner. Global Electric Electronic Processing (GEEP) was selected because of its experience in electronics recycling with a zero-landfill goal. Samsung will audit, and will continue to conduct periodic audits, of this recycler and its operations to ensure its performance remains in keeping with Samsung's stringent policies and contractual terms. The contractual terms to which a recycling partner must abide by include, among others, that they will not, under any circumstance, incinerate, send to solid waste landfill, or export toxic waste as defined in a manner consistent with the commonly accepted Basel Convention and Basel Ban Amendment definition of hazardous electronic waste to developing countries. If, at any time, the performance of Samsung's recycling partner violates any term of our agreement, Samsung will immediately terminate that relationship. Recycling DirectTM allows Samsung to track and monitor consumer electronics collected as part of our program and also enables Samsung to capture and report on our progress.

How can Samsung ensure that the recycling of these consumer electronics and their components will be done in a safe and legal way?

By selecting a recycler that does not incinerate, send to solid waste landfill, or export toxic waste (defined in a manner consistent with the commonly accepted definition of hazardous electronic waste) to developing countries – further enforced by our ongoing audits and inspections of our recycling partner operations and processes – we are ensuring to the best of our ability that your consumer electronics are being recycled in the most responsible way possible.

Do participants have to pay to have their consumer electronics recycled?

Through the Samsung Recycling DirectTM program consumers do not pay a fee to recycle their Samsung-branded consumer electronics sold in Canada. Non-Samsung-branded consumer electronics will be accepted for a nominal fee paid directly to Samsung's contracted recycling partner upon delivery of the e-waste.
