IIT ensures ewaste is recycled responsibly by employing a trusted recycling service, Sims Recycling Solution. We included these and many other points in our contract negotiations, and these became determining factors in our selection of subs.

IIT provides e-cycling services through Sims Recycling Solutions. Sims recycling pikcs up functional electronics from IIT and transports it to their West Chicago Facility. You can request a pick-up for your old electronic equipment by placing a work order with facilities. IIT also outlines a website available for individuals interested in recycling their own e-waste. The website, myboneyard.com, provides you with various e-waste options and the types of waste they will accept. They will send you an appropriate shipping container with prepaid shipping. The services costs you nothing and, depending on the state of the equipment, the website will pay you. If the equipment is functional, myboneyard.com will find reuse markets. If not, they will recycle as much as they can and dispose of the remainder in an environementally responsible manner.
