E-Waste can be very difficult to dispose of properly and can do major damage to the environment if allowed to find its way into natural areas. To address this, the Office of Sustainability holds an e-waste recycling collection drive one per year. The entire community is invited to bring any acceptable e-waste to these drives to dispose of them in the most environmentally friendly way. Over the years, these events have diverted multiple tons of e-waste from landfils.
Details on when and where the drive will be held can be found below along with a list of acceptable e-waste items. If you miss an event, the Office encourages you to save up items for the next semester. If the need is urgent, please reach out to a private e-waste recycler for your needs.
