A brief description of steps taken to ensure that e-waste is recycled responsibly, workers’ basic safety is protected, and environmental standards are met:
We obtain certificates of recycling from Sunnking on all our e-waste, we have inspected the Sunnking facility on several occasions, our purchasing department purchases only green/sustainable computers as specified by state contract. The Sunnking facility is well run and we audit it to assure that no environmental or safety issues are evident.
A brief description of the electronic waste recycling program for institution-generated materials:
We have a contract in place with Sunnking Inc. to recycle all of our electronic waste stream. The office of information technology handles the collection and sorting of all computers and they check each computer before it is recycled to assure no secure information is compromised. Sunnking then shreds any hard drives in the computers before they are either updated or recycled.
A brief description of the electronic waste recycling program for student-generated materials :
We offer free collection of computers and electronic devices on our campus year round and we also provide added collection bins in the residence halls at the end of the academic year when they are leaving. We also provide an e-waste collection bin in the Student Union year round.
