A brief description of steps taken to ensure that e-waste is recycled responsibly, workers’ basic safety is protected, and environmental standards are met:
All electronic waste from HPU is recycled through Hawaii's largest electronic waste recycler, Pacific Corporate Solutions. This company was contacted by HPU's sustainability coordinator to ensure that all materials were properly recycled.
A brief description of the electronic waste recycling program for institution-generated materials:
Electronic waste that is generated by HPU is collected by HPU's facilities manager, Rap Craig. Rap collects all electronic equipment and contacts Pacific Corporate Solutions for pick-ups.
A brief description of the electronic waste recycling program for student-generated materials :
Students are sent campus-wide email announcements once or twice a year to inform them that Pacific Corporate Solutions will be on campus to collect and recycle any electronic waste they might need to get rid of. Also, Pacific Corporate Solutions sends a truck to Fort Street Mall (2 blocks from HPU's campus) every other Friday to collect e-waste from local businesses, including HPU students and employees.
