E-Waste Drop-off Event

Time: 9:00 am-12:00 pm

Description:

Humboldt State will hold a free e-waste drop off event for HSU students, faculty and staff Saturday, Dec. 8 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Student Business Services parking lot.

E-Waste is the name given to computers, televisions, stereos, copiers, cell phones and other electronics nearing the end of their “lifecycles.” Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled. Unfortunately, discarded electronics are one of the fastest growing segments of our nation’s waste stream, according to HSU Sustainability & Waste coordinator Morgan King. Throwing electronics away can have serious environmental and health consequences, because many of the materials used to make electronics are either toxic or hazardous. In California, it is illegal to throw electronics into the landfill.

HSU students, faculty and staff are encouraged to drop off their e-waste Dec. 8 between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. in the Student Business Services parking lot. An HSU ID will be required for drop off. Please do not bring any hazardous waste items, paint, batteries, or items that would normally go through the campus operations collection process (i.e., items with HSU property ID tags). Sponsored by the HSU Waste Reduction and Resource Awareness Program (WRRAP), Environmental Health & Safety and Plant Operations.
