 I know facilities can come to pick up TV's and remote controls to recycle. Can they also recycle printers?

Posted on Thursday, May. 28, 2009

All e-waste can be recycled at Santa Clara University. E-waste includes materials that use batteries or have an electronic cord. A printer is an acceptable example of E-waste.

Students in the residence halls should place e-waste in the designated spot in their recycling and waste area (there should be a sign that reads "e-waste").

Faculty and staff should contact Facilities at extension 4742 to arrange for a pick up.
