This credit applies to all institutions.
Each part of the credit is scored separately.
Institutions earn 0.5 points for meeting the criteria outlined above. Partial points are not available for Part 1.
Institutions earn the maximum of 0.5 points available for Part 2 for having or participating in a program to responsibly recycle, reuse, and/or refurbish electronic waste generated by both the institution and its students. Partial points are available. For example, an institution whose program includes recycling, reusing, and/or refurbishing electronic waste generated by the institution or its students, but not by both, would earn 0.25 points (half of the points available for Part 2).
