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

LSU properly handles and disposes of all wastes in accordance with State and Federal laws. All University faculty, staff and students are encouraged to identify opportunities for waste minimization.


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

If materials are designated as scrap (not surplus) by the state, then the university can release state property to a local non-profit organization, Capital Area Corporate Recycling Center. The CACRC does have a cooperative agreement with State Property stating that equipment is refurbished and it goes toward programs for low-income families and schools.

LSU has battery collection locations in several areas: 3 academic buildings, two administration buildings and University STores. LSU is working on establishing a recycling station at the Union for Cell phones, batteries, CFL bulbs, and Ink Cartridges.
