What is the We Recycle program?
Thank you for your contribution!
Videotron allows you to take concrete actions for the environment by giving a second chance to your obsolete devices.
When you bring your phone to one of our stores, if it is too old or shows too much wear and tear to qualify for the Trade-in Credit, you can recycle it with the We Recycle program. Why not round up all your old small electronics? You can bring them in for recycling at the same time!
Devices accepted under the We Recycle program
Here are the devices you can bring to Videotron for recycling:
- Mobile phones and tablets
- Home phones
- Terminals, remote controls, routers, and modems
- Accessories (mobile Internet keys, cables, chargers, headphones, smartwatches, etc.)
Bring your devices to a Videotron store or send them by mail. When you recycle, you’re looking out for future generations! Learn more about our commitment.
- Create a return label and print it out.
- A Planète Courrier advisor will send you an email with the return slip and shipping options.

Every day, electronic materials are given a second life through reuse, recycling, and recovery. To make this happen, since 2010, Videotron is proud to have partnered with SIT Mauricie, an organization whose mission is to support the social integration, labour market re-entry, and wellness of people with mental health issues in the Mauricie area. On a daily basis, employees ensure the responsible management of electronic materials from construction projects, network maintenance, and customer returns.
All mobile devices and their accessories can be recycled at the same time. They must be dropped off at a collection point or sent by mail, in a single package.
