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

IUPUI Surplus eWaste is handled with care; employees stack items securely on pallets, using cardboard to stabilize each level waste, and industrial plastic wrap to prepare for transport. Employees report to manager all damaged contents, including but not limited to leaks, sharp objects, and potentially combustible materials.


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

When IUPUI Surplus obtains any asset deemed as a ‘eWaste’ item, it is palletized and prepared for transport to CRS or RecycleForce*. (*RecycleForce may be used as a recycling service provider for eWaste items abandoned after a public auction event at Surplus). Both service providers send letters of recycling when assets are safely recycled.


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

E-Waste collection is a semi-annual event in cooperation with a local nonprofit, RecycleForce to collect personal (non-IU) electronic waste such as cell phones, tablets, chargers or curling irons -- almost anything with a cord -- which RecycleForce will dismantle and recycle. RecycleForce is a social enterprise offering some of the most comprehensive and innovative recycling services available while providing life-changing workforce training to formerly incarcerated individuals.
