E-Waste Drop-Off

Time: 9:00 am-12:00 pm

Description:

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 is one of the fastest growing segments of our nation’s waste stream.

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 actually illegal to throw electronics into the landfill!

HSU students, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to drop off their e-waste on campus for recycling. This FREE e-waste drive will be held on Saturday April 19th, between 9am and 12pm in the Student Business Services Building parking lot. The event is only open to HSU students, staff, and faculty and 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). This FREE event is brought to you by the HSU Waste Reduction and Resource Awareness Program (WRRAP), Environmental Health & Safety, and Facilities Management.
