RecycleSarnia.ca was created in 2002 by Digital Friends Inc.
We believed that there should be a means of not sending old computers to the landfill. From that thought our recycling program started and grew to include most electrical and electronic items and associated accessories.
Digtal Friends believed that our recycling service should be free of charge to those disposing of the materials, and as simple and straight forward as possible — no hoops, paperwork, no special rules — just bring it to us and be able to trust everything will be handled in an ethical, secure, and environmentally responsible way.
We also felt that our recycling program should be completely self-sustaining. We do not recieve outside funding or grant programs.
Today we receive end-of-life electrical and electronic items from across Sarnia Lambton. The drop-off center is open to everyone – residential, business, or institutions
Through the storefront of Digital Friends, refurbished equipment including computers, laptops, printers, tvs and components are available for sale. Our refurbished equipment has allowed many new business to keep their costs down. Numerous families have found that our refurbished computers have allowed them to provide a computer for each of their children. Our refurbished equipment offers some students with options that they simply could not afford with only new.
Digital Friends is sincerely grateful to all the residents and businesses that recycle through our program. Without all these community partners, we could not offer the refurbished product options to Sarnia Lambton.
