Does the institution have a program in place to recycle, reuse, and/or refurbish electronic waste generated by students and take measures to ensure that the electronic waste is recycled responsibly?:
A brief description of steps taken to ensure that e-waste is recycled responsibly, workers’ basic safety is protected, and environmental standards are met:
All campus-owned equipment is recycled according to current EPA standards through third party vendors and our county recycling facility. Any member of the campus community, including students and employees, can recycle personal equipment under the same program for a small fee ($15-25, depending on type of equipment).
A brief description of the electronic waste recycling program for institution-generated materials:
All tagged equipment must be disposed of through the campus IT office. This office strives to find a re-use solution for all equipment through local charitable organizations. For truly unusable equipment, UD IT recycles through a third party vendor who has pledged to conduct all recycling in the US. All other material not processed through this vendor is processed as hazardous waste and/or disposed of through our county solid waste district.
A brief description of the electronic waste recycling program for student-generated materials :
Student equipment can be processed through the same program as campus owned equipment for a small fee. In addition, small electronics are also collected for recycling through GreenDisk.
