Staples, and FutureShop let you drop off any electronic waste any 
time, without charge, for recycling?

I've heard of BatteryPlus and The Source taking rechargeable 
batteries, and Baka cell phones, and the hospital for reading glasses, 
but never knew Staples / FutureShop took it all.

Without the $10/item charge the dump charges, once, of course, you get 
it out there.

There's another local firm, can't remember the name, that will also 
take it, for a charge.

Do we know that Staples, FutureShop, etc. actually forwards it to 
recycling, not just the dump? And that the dump actually recycles it, 
not just safely disposes of it?
