A brief description of steps taken to ensure that e-waste is recycled responsibly, workers’ basic safety is protected, and environmental standards are met:
1st step - Electronic waste (computers, monitors, printers, keyboards, mice, cables, refrigerators, and scales) is brought to the IT department.
2nd step - A local technology recycler company collects, roughly bi-monthly, all the e-waste.
3rd step - Once the electronic waste is collected at DUC it is reused or transferred to a State approved recycler.
A brief description of the electronic waste recycling program for institution-generated materials:
Staff and Faculty are aware they can bring their e-waste to the IT department for recycling. As reinforcement, in the week that the recycler comes to the University to collect Dominican's electronic waste, IT sends an informative email to remind people to bring their material.
