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

The Facilities Maint. Dept. does recycle the institution’s electronics. It is taken to Appliance Recyclers, south of St. Cloud. We do pay for this service. And we also take anything we find in the trash to the same place. All retired computer equipment is re-sold on a lottery system to interested staff for personal use.


A brief description of the electronic waste recycling program for institution-generated materials:

The institution always tries to refurbish materials whenever possible to be used on campus or sold. When this is not an option, it is sold to a licensed e-waste company.


A brief description of the electronic waste recycling program for student-generated materials :

Students are responsible for recycling their own electronic waste. Any waste found in the trash is taken out by our staff and brought to Appliance Recyclers in St. Cloud.
