Recycle Your Old Personal Electronics THIS Weekend!

The red star marks the location of the e-waste collection center at this Saturday’s recycling event.

Have you heard about how you can recycle your old electronics? This is the second year the RecycleMania competition includes recycling electronic waste. The electronic portion of the competition is a one month recycling period that is open to all members of the greater Toledo community instead of solely UT students, faculty, and staff. Therefore, if you have friends or neighbors, or you yourself have old electronics you need recycled; bring them to our recycling event. The Community E-Waste event is being held THIS Saturday, February 16th from 10AM to 2PM in lot 28, between Carter Hall and Plant Operation.

With the help of AIM Recycling, SEED is able to host the event. Caroline Beck, SEE’s RecycleMania intern ensures AIM is “R2 certified, meaning they recycle all electronics in an environmentally-friendly manner, data-bearing devices are securely destroyed or wiped to Department of Defense standards, and their company as a whole is focused on operating in an eco-friendly way.” So you can be sure that they will properly destroy all the data on your devices.

The following items will be accepted at the Electronics Recycling Drive:
  • Computers
  • Laptops
  • Monitors
  • Printers
  • Modems
  • Hard Drives
  • Cables
  • Speakers
  • Keyboards
  • Computer Mice
  • Cameras
  • Radios
  • Cell Phones
  • Telephones
  • Electronic Games
  • VCRs and DVD Players
  • Power Tools

If you have any of these items, join us THIS Saturday, February 16th from 10am to 2pm in lot 28 to help UT win RecycleMania 2013! If you have any questions on what can or cannot be recycled, please call or email Brooke Mason at 419-530-1042 or See you Saturday!
