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

This is basically how we function as to recycling of SIUE owned electronics.
All electronics that are no longer of use to the University are sent to SIUE Surplus Property
for disposition. If the items are not able to be re-issued to any SIUE Department or to any
other State Agency, they are sent to a recycler.
Currently the recycler approved by CMS is Secure Processor’s in Flora, IL. Items are de-processed
to recover usable raw materials such as connections, memory chips, plastic cases, etc. All hard drives are removed
and shredded. The shredded materials are then recycled as scrap metal to be melted down and reprocessed.
We are also able to send to secure Processors scrap industrial plastics such as pallet wrap, broken letter trays, etc.
as well as surplus books and periodicals from Lovejoy Library, this allows us to divert these items from the waste stream.
If you have any questions, please call.
Thank you,
Ron
