A brief description of steps taken to ensure that e-waste is recycled responsibly, workers’ basic safety is protected, and environmental standards are met:

Through the college's website, sustainability blog and social media outlets, students are encouraged to bring electronics to the Office of Sustainability or Information Technology Services office to ensure they are disposed of properly. The school recycles through both the city of Decatur Electronics Recycling Day and pick-up by Atlanta Recycling Solutions.

Both recycling facilities are committed to responsibly recycling materials. Atlanta Recycling Solutions has a "Zero Landfill Policy," which can be found here: http://arsrecycle.com/
