The University of Michigan and Ann Arbor Public Schools co-sponsored a community-wide e-waste recycling event from 2008-2016. Due to changes with the recycling partner, we are not having future e-waste recycling events. Other options for the responsible recycling of electronics can be found below.
- Washtenaw County residents can take advantage of countywide cleanup 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.
The summary from the U-M/AAPS events can be found here.
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.
