What to do with old toaster?

Got a shiny new appliance under the tree? Here's what to do with old one

With the Christmas just days away, toasters, blenders and other small appliances are sure to change hands, prompting a proud new owner to ask, “What do I do with my old small appliance?”

Unplugged, the Small Appliance Recycling Program, gives British Columbians an environmentally-friendly alternative to trashing their old toaster or binning that blender this holiday season.

The first small appliance recycling program of its kind in Canada, and the only government-approved program in B.C., Unplugged recycles more than 120 small appliances, and has more than 100 collection locations across the province. The program operates on a non-profit basis.
