Will Pike lugged one of dozens of televisions onto a trailer during the Recycle Your Electronics tour here yesterday. The tour, which has collected 70 metric tonnes of materials throughout the province, continues today from 2-8 p.m. at the Memorial Sports Centre parking lot. Yesterday, 113 vehicles dropped off their old electronics in just three hours. Parts of the discarded equipment can be salvaged for new materials while some items can be reused.
