Community E-Waste Program


Electronic Waste (E-Waste)

Environmental Health and Safety accepts e-waste from campus-generated sources to facilitate recycling and proper disposal. E-waste from off-campus and the general public is not accepted at this time. 

E-waste can be dropped off during normal business hours by calling EH&S at x4697 to schedule an appointment. Normal collections are held on the last working day each week unless scheduled by appointment for a different day.


NOTE: Any equipment or e-waste left unattended is considered illegally dumping hazardous waste and will be investigated accordingly. Click on the links for more information on Federal and State regulations.
