 "Responsible Electronics Recycling"

Be responsible "RECYCLE" your old electronics!

We take just about any kind of Electronics & Ink Cartridges!

Why? Because ewaste is extremely toxic when not disposed of in an approved manner! The RER was first conceived four years ago when it was noted that electronics waste or ewaste often found its way into landfills throughout Manitoba.

Computer Lending Library 

 

 

 

Our Mission Statement

The SDCLC sponsored Computer Lending Program is designed to encourage the use of computers by making them accessible to those who are unable to otherwise acquire them; thereby increasing their quality of life, literacy, fluency and enhancing the specialty skills that have become a requirement for more employment opportunities - even in entry-level positions.

The Computer Lending Library supplies you with a basic set of computer equipment and will also offer basic instructions for assembling and operating your computer. The training is scheduled through the Selkirk & District Community Learning Centre.
