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 Sustainability Team accepts e-waste drop-offs from any campus-associated person (staff and students). This includes college waste and personal e-waste. Once a year (in April), we have a public drive to gather e-waste for collection. We partner with EcoAvenues and the Goodwill of Arizona to do this. We accept Computers, Laptops, Monitors, Printers, Network Cards, Routers, Hard Drives, Floppy and CD-ROM Drives, Copiers, Fax Machines, Telephones, Cell Phones, Test Equipment, Wire and Cable, Power Supplies, Circuit Boards, Video Game Equipment, Calculators, Typewriters, Stereo Equipment, Credit Card Machines, Batteries, Etc. (Anything with a plug!)
