A brief description of steps taken to ensure that e-waste is recycled responsibly, workers’ basic safety is protected, and environmental standards are met:
When we sell in auction, we make sure that the purchaser promises to re-use properly. The university does not dismantle or recover the individual components so for NMSU there are no hazards.
A brief description of the electronic waste recycling program for institution-generated materials:
As a policy, all electronic devices are sent to the Property Office, all hard drives are erased, and then sold at auction. We ascertain that the products do not go to countries where the hazardous materials are taken out without safety precautions. We send our e-waste to New Mexico prison system where it is dismantled or re-used when possible.
