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

Items that we no longer use are disposed of in a metal bin just behind the CompTel Center after we pirate them for pieces that we might use in other units. Those bin items are then removed by Marty Hawkins' PPS crew. I believe now he takes those items down to Winchester, but you would need to check with him on that. Used toner cartridges are boxed in original cartons and we use the HP recycling program for those.


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

All old computers, displays, kb/mice, etc are not thrown away. For many years now, we have donated to public schools, churches, and to employees items that would not normally be issued back out to an office, lab, or classroom area. So, this could be termed as recycling as the equipment isn't dumped and serves others who might not otherwise have computing equipment.
