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

98% of electronics taken by Colorado State's e-waste program is either reused or recycled. No incineration is used in the recycling process. Transportation of electronic devices is secured by skilled and trained drivers.


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

Both student generated and institution generated electronic waste is picked up from the original location and securely transported to the e-waste facility where it is evaluated and either reused or recycled. The facility is located on campus and the pick-up and transportation is free to students and staff.
