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

o The Library & Information Services Department manages the disposal of scrap electronics for the College through a contact with a local outside vendor. Scrap electronics includes CPUs, monitors, keyboards, mice, printers, televisions, telephones, or other electronic devices that contain a circuit board. These items are not specifically required to be managed as regulated waste; however, due to the lead content of printed circuitry, and the potential for other hazardous materials in electronics devices, scrap electronics must not be disposed in the municipal waste stream.


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

All computers that are no longer operable are sent to a local business--The Computer Barn--for recycling purposes.

EarthNow, Dickinson’s student environmental club, manages the campus-wide recycling of cell phones. Additionally, there is a central distribution area in the college’s student union that provides recycling for ink cartridges and batteries.
