Approximately 130,000 computers and 275,000 cell phones are thrown out each day in the United States alone!
The Office of Sustainability has set up several programs to help faculty, staff and students properly dispose of unwanted electronics.

Batteries, cell phones, hand-held electronics and ink jet cartridges
The Office of Sustainability has set up two electronics recycling stations for students, faculty and staff to recycle batteries, cell phones, small handheld electronics and small ink-jet cartridges. One station is located on the ground floor of the Library and the other is on the first floor of Morrison (outside of the Service Learning Office).
These stations are for the above-listed items only, please do not leave any other items in or next to the stations.
Faculty and staff may also set aside batteries, cell phones, handheld electronics and ink-jet cartridges from department operations to be collected during Tag & Snag events once each month.
