E-Waste Collection

Wednesday March 15
8:00 am- 3:00 pm
Parking Lot B5 across from the Robins Center

The Office of Sustainability and the Information Services team are partnering again this year with Arrow Recovery Services to host the annual E-waste Collection and Recycling Event. This event is for University faculty, staff, and students to dispose of your personally owned electronic assets. Bring us your old computers, printers, and accessories, phones, TVs, and other electronics ready for disposal. Staff will be available to help unload your vehicle. 

All materials are responsibly recycled or disposed of, and all hard drives are overwritten or shredded to remove personal information. 

Through the recycling and reuse of nearly 4000 lbs. of collected items in 2014, this event saved enough electricity to power 27 houses for one year, reduced the equivalent weight of 27 bricks worth of hazardous waste, and eliminated greenhouse gases equivalent to removing three cars from the road.

What is e-waste?

E-waste includes electronic equipment that no longer works or is past its useful life. We will accept yourr old computers, printers, phones, TVs, and just about anything else with a plug. Thank you for helping us keep these items out of the landfill!

Information Security

Arrow will manage personal data bearing equipment the same as they do for the University of Richmond’s data bearing equipment.  They will perform a one-pass overwrite of all hard drives.  If a hard drive is unable to be overwritten then they will remove the hard drive and have it shredded.
