Pizza slices for unwanted electronics this April at Pizza Pizza

Slices for Devices program represents a true win-win-win for the environment, customers and children's hospitals



For the twelfth consecutive year, Pizza Pizza is offering a free slice of pizza to customers who drop off eligible electronic devices at any of its participating stores throughout the month of April.

Pizza Pizza invites customers to drop off used small electronic devices like smart phones, digital cameras and mp3 players in exchange for a free slice of pepperoni or cheese pizza. With the help of Greentec, the devices will be responsibly recycled with the proceeds from the process going to the benefit of Children’s Miracle Network for a second straight year.

“The consequences of improperly discarding our unused devices can be devastating to the environment over time,” said Pat Finelli, Chief Marketing Officer for Pizza Pizza. “Programs like Slices for Devices can help to remind people that if we work together, we can reduce our impact on the environment. We’re delighted to offer value to recyclers, our environment, and Children’s Miracle Network.”

For the first time, Pizza Pizza is extending the device collection drive to companies looking to securely recycle their large e-waste, including monitors, laptops, computer towers and IT equipment, in exchange for gift cards which can be used towards an office pizza party.

All traditional Pizza Pizza restaurant locations across Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia will be participating in the Slices for Devices program. Since its launch in 2004, the program has diverted more than 14,000 electronic devices from landfills.

Did you know?

Electronic waste continues to be a growing issue in Canada. While it represents only two per cent of trash in landfills, it equals nearly 70 per cent of overall toxic waste. Figures from Statistics Canada reveal that anywhere between 80 and 85 per cent of electronic products are discarded the wrong way, ending up in landfills or incinerators, which can release harmful toxins into the air.
