No

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

A C-7 form is issued by the recycling entity, stating all electronics have been properly recycled.
Employees are trained on the hazards of electronic equipment as well as proper lifting.


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

The program consist of when we receive notification and/or electronic equipment for disposal:

1. Other departments on campus are notified on exactly what is available and if they would like/need the usable equipment.

2. If no response, then all equipment is offered to all SUNY Campuses for their reuse.

3. If there are no responses from the other campuses, then the equipment is offered to all state agencies first, then all counties, cities, villages, etc, of the state for their reuse.

4. If no responses, then it is either put up for sale on E-bay by OGS and sold or given loc al disposition and the a electronic recycler is called in to dispose/reuse the equipment. The recycler we use, makes use of all equipment for resale first then dismantling for recycling. No electronic waste ends into the landfill.

If the equipment is non-useable then it goes directly to the recycler for proper dismantling and recycling of all parts
