University of Michigan and Ann Arbor Public schools co-sponsored a community wide eWaste Recycling event from 2008-2016. The summary from the annual events can be found here. Due to changes with the recycling partner we will not have any future e-waste recycling events. Other options for the responsible recycling of electronics can be found below.
- Washtenaw County residents can take advantage of the county wide clean up days.
- Washtenaw resources for computer reuse and recycling
- Ann Arbor resources for electronic waste recycling
For tips on recycling your e-Waste at other times, see the EPA website
Protect the Environment
- Electronic waste, or e-Waste, is the fastest growing waste stream in the country.
- e-Waste often contains hazardous materials, which can adversely affect the environment.
Conserve Natural Resources
- Consumer electronics contain materials that require the mining of raw materials. They are highly recyclable.
- Electronics recycling technology separates commodity streams of metals, plastics and glass, and processes these materials for reuse in new products.
