With the new University fiscal year starting soon, you and your colleagues or staff may be ordering new computers and other electronic devices for your department. The University of Chicago has an e-waste recycling service where you can properly dispose of your old tech for no charge.
Used computers, monitors, and other electronic equipment that are disposed of improperly have the potential to contaminate our environment, and prematurely fill our existing landfills. Recycling or processing e-waste to extract the minerals trapped inside and reusing the rest of the components is a practical solution to solve the hazard of e-waste.
View the University’s Waste and Recycling Resources website for information on campus e-waste drop-off locations and how to arrange an e-waste pickup.
