Electronics Recycling Day a Step in Campus Sustainability Efforts

May 9, 2008

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Information Technology (IT) is hosting an electronics recycling day for the Illinois Wesleyan University students, faculty and staff on Wednesday, May 14. Unwanted electronic devices may be dropped off from 7:30 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the IT office, located at 1207 N. Main St. between Kemp Hall and the Memorial Center.

Electronics recycling day is being inaugurated this year due to campus-wide interest. “IT staff members are often asked about options for disposing old electronics,” said Trey Short, director of computer services. “Since IT recycles old University equipment twice a year, we thought it would be great to open the recycle day to the campus community.”

IT will accept laptop and desktop computers, computer monitors, printers, VCRs and DVD players, stereo receivers and amps, cell phones and small batteries for recycling.
