Bring your old electronics to the Renaissance Donation Centres!

The Renaissance Donation Centres are among the official drop off points of the Québec Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA-Québec). This non-profit organization, recognized by Recyc-Québec, is responsible for the recovery and recycling of electronic products in the province and offers the assurance that the old electronics are kept out of landfill sites and recycled in a safe and ecological manner.
By associating with EPRA-Québec and by allowing people to bring their obsolete electronics to its Donation Centres, Renaissance wanted to ensure that the end of life electronics were recycled in a safe and environmentally responsible fashion. 

What to recycle? Consult the complete list on the website of EPRA-Québec at recycleMYelectronics.ca/qc.

Recycle your old vehicle with the Car for life program!

Renaissance is a partner in the Car for life program developed by the Foundation of the Association des recycleurs de pièces d'autos et de camions. When you accept to donate your car, the amount of money corresponding to the car's value will be donated to the organization of your choice (Renaissance!). It is a great way to dispose of your old jalopy in a responsible manner while supporting the job training program at Renaissance. To learn more about the Car for life program: http://arpac.org/carforlife/
