May 6: Electronics Recycling Day

May 3, 2011 under CANR News

The Longwood Graduate Program is thrilled to bring you another Electronics Recycling Day on Friday, May 6th from 11:00am to 1:00pm. During this 2-hour period, we will be collecting your unwanted electronics in the alcove of Townsend Hall Commons or, weather permitting, in front of Townsend Hall at the College Avenue entrance. They will be recycled with UD’s Supporting Services or available for reuse by anyone coming to the Commons. Some examples of items we will be accepting are: computers, computer components, TVs, radios, scanners, printers, cell phones, batteries, microwaves, stereos, and other smaller electronic items. For a more complete list from Delaware Solid Waste Authority, see: http://www.dswa.com/programs_electronic.asp#Acceptable.

Unlike our previous ERD’s, we will NOT also be collecting plastic bags for recycling since the firm we had been working with to collect them is no longer offering its services to us, unfortunately. This is an E-waste-only event!

So remember to drop off your unwanted broken or functional electronics at this event, and we will take them for you to UD Supporting Services, who will properly dispose of them through Delaware Solid Waste Authority. Don’t forget to delete any sensitive information from personal electronics, particularly computer hard drives!

If you are unable to drop off your electronics during the 11am-1pm collection time, you can also bring it to the Longwood graduate student office at 125 Townsend Hall ahead of time.
