Electronic Kids Toys

Canadians have been tossing more than 140,000 tonnes of electronic waste into landfills each year, most of which contain heavy metals, flame retardants and other hazardous materials. Go with a green solution; as of 2012 they can be recycled instead through the Electronic Toy Stewardship Program for British Columbia.

Examples

remote control vehicles, metal toys with electronics, plush textiles with electronics, gaming devices, handheld devices
