Any device that is powered by electricity is considered electronic waste when it is ready for disposal. E-waste cannot be disposed of as ordinary trash. Electronic waste is recycled by the Office of Receiving and Property Control – even if it is not on inventory.
All electronic equipment is acceptable with the exception of hazardous waste, radioactive waste, biohazardous waste and mercury-containing devices. If your equipment contains any of the above mentioned waste, please contact the Office of Environmental Health and Safety at 662.325.3294 for more information on how to dispose of these items.
