SLICES FOR DEVICES

Recycle an old device, get a free slice!

Each April to mark Earth Month, Pizza Pizza holds its Slices for Devices campaign at traditional locations across Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia. Now in its 13th year, the Pizza Pizza team has helped divert over 17,000 electronic devices from landfills to-date.

Pizza Pizza has partnered with Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA) and Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES) to help customers who may be looking to get a head start on their spring cleaning by clearing out their old electronic devices.

All devices collected will be safely recycled by EPRA. Proceeds from the recycling will be donated to Children´s Miracle Network through Pizza Pizza´s Slices for Smiles Foundation.

How can you participate?

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Out of use electronics are composed of reusable materials like plastics, copper and precious metals that can be recycled into materials and put back into manufacturing. 

  • Your smart phone is filled with precious metals. In fact, one tonne of recycled phones yields 324 times more gold than the same weight in ore from a traditional mine.

  • Last year, Pizza Pizza diverted 6,447 lbs of unwanted electronics from landfills.
