The Bell Canada Retirees group called the Pioneers used to operate a service like this. I've heard different rumours about what was actually done. I heard that they would strip down machines and use the parts to build new machines which were donated to charities and third world countries.

I also heard that they would work with youths who needed skill training to do this as well.

You'd never know it from their own website, but Bureau en Gros (Staples) is (was?) providing collection points for a program called Mission: Zéro déchet électronique.

Some info here:

PDF list of participating stores (good idea to call first):
