    I have always used the e waste facility in my area. I was very pleased that I knew as many of the answers as I did. I really rely on my fixmesyick.

    About 18 months ago I tried taking old phones to the e-waste, and was told that they could no longer take these because the Canadian Government did not have any way to dispose of them, and that the only thing I could do is throw them in the regular garbage. I even wrote to the government, but only received a reply from our local MLA, who gave me a bunch of exuses as to why they could not take them. Just thought I would share my experience, and explain my “wrong” answer.

      Hi there, thanks for your comment! I’m sorry to see your previous experience with recycling your old phone. You can check out this website for more information about recycling your old phones and accessories as well as for available drop-off locations near you: https://www.recyclemycell.ca/ . Most smartphone sellers also offer Trade-In options where you can drop off your old phone to receive a discount on a new one.

    I didn’t know all of the answers but I was surprised that I knew most of them

    I’ve learned over the decades as technology has increased to always take my old computers to an e-waste facility or give my old cell phones to an organization that can use them. My fixmestick is one of the best purchases I’ve ever done.

    I knew all the answers; however I like to donate old working phones to a sistercare projects instead of using e waste.

    Thanks for the quiz, very informative. I always use the recycling facility for used electronics. Rely on fix me stick from time to time as it takes about 7 hours to get it done.
