Two years ago we recycled a couple of computers at Computer Recycle Depot on Erb Street in Waterloo and I wrote a post about this new company. We had a computer and scanner to dispose of this weekend and discovered that Computer Recycle Depot was no longer across from the Erb Street landfill site. Their website now directs to MyoldPC.ca and a number of drop off locations are available in the region. I ended up driving to the new RONA store on Forwell Drive in Kitchener to use this free electronic drop off box. Here is a partial list of drop off locations:
Elmira: MCC Thrift & Gift 59 Church Street, Elmira, ON
Kitchener: Boyer RONA Building Center 5 Forwell Road, Kitchener, ON
Aaron’s Sales & Lease Ownership 1-1120 Victoria St. N, Kitchener, ON
New Dundee: Formerly Harron’s RONA 1127 Bridge St. New Dundee, ON
Waterloo: Waterloo Generations -another MCC Thrift Shop 50 Bridgeport Road, Waterloo, ON
Martins Family Fruit Farm retail store still has lots of local produce for sale at competitive prices.
It was a perfect early spring day for the annual Elmira Maple Syrup Festival. We arrived well before 9 AM and Arthur Street was already jammed with pedestrians. It was the busiest I have seen it in a few years and when we returned to Kitchener, the traffic was backed up all the way to Waterloo on the expressway. There is a good variety of street food for sale besides pancakes and maple syrup.
March 25- 27, 2011 at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex, East Avenue, Kitchener. For more information check this website.
There are a few ethnic food stores we visit in the region including this one which specializes in Korean and Japanese food. The shop is small but is a good source for reasonably priced sushi ingredients. The staff is very helpful if you need help with unfamiliar items. (map)
At the Crossroads is located at the south end of Elmira. This popular country style buffet also offers breakfast, lunch and dinner options from a menu . The Mercantile has a large selection of items for sale including home and garden decor, giftware, cards and an attractive quilting shop.
