Spring E-Recycling


The Geosciences Association (student club), in conjunction with Sunnking Electronics Recycling, will be holding an electronic recycling event on Friday, May 14th in parking lot M1 from 8 am- 3 pm.  Several items can be recycled at this event, including:

Computers/laptops
Printers
Mice
Keyboards
Monitors (CRTs) all sizes
Televisions
Copiers
Typewriters
Fax Machines
Cellular Phones
Pagers
Audio Equipment
Video Equipment
Telephone Equipment
Test Equipment
Laboratory Equipment
Circuit Boards (any kind)
Cables/Wire

Items not accepted at this event include refrigerators, other kitchen appliances, hazardous or radioactive materials, and mercury-containing devices.  Sunnking’s fee for properly disposing of a computer monitor is $10 and for a television is $15. 

Electronic, or e-recycling, prevents harmful chemicals, such as lead, cadmium, and copper from leaching out of landfills and into groundwater, soils, and surface water.  It also recycles and re-uses plastic and metal components in refurbished electronics and other products. 

Proceeds and additional donations from this event will benefit the Geosciences Association in future programming and field trips.  The Geosciences Association is dedicated to learning and teaching about geology, geography, and sustainability.  The student club participates in local environmental restoration events, community service, and educational field trips.
