About Us

Who We Are

Shanked Computer Recycling Inc. (SCRI) is an approved electronic recycler based in Alberta and managed by the Alberta Recycling Management Authority. As the safety of our workers and visitors is paramount to us, we have attained COR (Certificate of Recognition), ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications. We meet all applicable occupational health and safety standards, environmental laws and regulations, and we strive for continual improvements.

SCRI offers genuine safe, secure, and environmentally friendly recycling solutions for computers, televisions, printers and laptops. Our trusted employees and valued clients share the same philosophy: provide a better environment for future generations by “reducing our footprint bit by bit.”

We have developed long-standing partnerships with businesses, schools, institutions, and industries in Edmonton and the surrounding area. We understand that DATA SECURITY is a primary concern of our clients. We provide FREE, safe and secure data destruction, and opportunities to witness the actual shredding process. We do not re-purpose any devices so your electronic waste is 100% safe with us.

Our facility is paved, gated, secured and monitored by a surveillance system utilizing numerous interior and exterior cameras 24/7. Additionally, all of our staff are bonded and all have obtained a RCMP Security background check.

Community Involvement

As a responsible corporate citizen in Alberta, we strongly believe in giving back to the community. We have participated in the Christmas Hamper Campaign by the Kinsmen Club of Stony Plain and Kinette Club of Spruce Grove for many years. Now, we are excited to have become an Operations Sponsor for the Parkland Food Bank. Going forward, we will continue to look for further opportunities to contribute to our community.

COVID-19 Pandemic 2020

We remain committed to serving our clients during the COVID-19 Pandemic. We continue to maintain our regular operating hours. Our staff are equipped with appropriate PPE and social distancing is emphasized throughout our organization.


“For over 12 years, Edmonton Public Schools has worked with Shanked Computer Recycling to reduce our environmental footprint through safe and secure recycling of electronic waste. Last year, Shanked helped Edmonton Public Schools recycle more than 140 tonnes of electronic waste. As our needs continue to grow, Shanked is a key partner in our work to support schools’ environmental efforts, keep electronic waste out of the landfill and build a more sustainable future.”

“Facilities and Operations at the University of Alberta has been very pleased with SCRI’s services for the last five years for our annual electronics roundup offered to university students and staff. Since 2011, these electronics roundup events have diverted more than 10 tonnes of electronics for responsible recycling. We have also partnered with SCRI to support the university’s Eco Move Out program since 2012, capturing an additional 8 tonnes of electronics. SCRI’s reliable and secure service has been essential to the success of these programs.”
