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

E-waste collection and packing is handled by EdCC Recycling Coordinator. Computer hard drives are erased before computers are recycled. E-waste is packed and shipped in wooden pallets. Our recycling vendor is a non-profit organization, "1 Green Planet." 1 Green Planet is a sustainable ZERO waste ZERO landfill recycling operation. All recycling is processed entirely in the state of Washington. No processing work or material is shipped overseas.


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

Staff and faculty can call for e-waste to be picked up by the Recycling Coordinator or drop it off at the warehouse/loading dock. IT personnel take the old computers and erase the hard drives before computers are recycled.


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

There are several bins located on campus for cell phones and batteries that students can drop off for recycling. Students can also contact the Recycling Coordinator to coordinate a drop-off/ pick-up of personal e-waste (whether it be a computer, a TV, or a even a microwave).
