E-Waste and Ink Cartridge Recycling

Electronic waste ("E-waste") consists of damaged or discarded electronic devices and associated materials. E-waste items should not be disposed of in the normal trash due to their high concentrations of toxic chemicals and heavy metals. Examples of e-waste include rechargeable batteries, toner and ink cartridges, cell phones and chargers, iPods, MP3 players, televisions and computers.

Students, faculty, and staff are able to recycle all personal e-waste through the Office of Sustainability's partnership with Central Stores, who ensures that the waste is recycled appropriately.
