Free e-Waste Recycling

Do you have an computer, monitor, or other type of e-Waste that you want to get rid of but don't know how to? The Office of Campus Sustainability along with Ann Arbor Public Schools are sponsoring a free event to recycle unwanted electronics in a responsible, earth friendly way. This event is a part of U-M's month long celebration of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. On Saturday, April 24 between 9am and 2pm you can bring any unwanted computer systems, A/V equipment, hand held devices, and other types of e-Waste to Pioneer High School for safe and environmentally conscious recycling. e-Waste is the fastest growing waste stream and distributes hazardous chemicals into the environment. By recycling your e-Waste in this way, you will be protecting the environment, conserving natural resources, acting responsibly, and providing raw materials for more products to be made.

There is also an institutional e-Waste event on Thursday April 22 and Friday April 23 between 9am and 2pm at Washtenaw Intermediate School District. Registration is required for this event.

This is great! Recycle that stuff you've have stashed in the basement collecting dust! It's FREE! Usually recycling of this nature is not free!
