Electronic Waste Recycling

California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) requires that used electronics be handled in an environmentally responsible manner. This means that old cellular phones, pagers, PDAs, telephones and the like cannot be placed in the normal trash. EH&S makes it easy to safely discard these devices.

We have placed a number of drop off locations around campus where electronic waste can be discarded. EH&S will collect these small electronic items and ensure that they are not sent to landfill for disposal. In fact, all devices and other items will be refurbished or recycled.

Examples of small items that can be placed in the drop off buckets include:

  • Calculators
  • CDs
  • Cellular Phones
  • PDAs
  • Telephones
  • Wireless Devices
  • Mice/Keyboards (small quantities)

Only small, non-capital equipment may be placed into these collection containers. For large volumes of these wastes and disposal of larger components (i.e. computers, monitors, printers, etc.), you are required to coordinate disposal through your Department Property Administrator.
