E­-waste bins are repurposed filing cabinets from campus! Feel good recycling your electronic waste when you drop it off in our repurposed E­-waste bins!

Bins are located in Benson, the lobby of the ZSR Library, Farrell basement, and the UCC.

If faculty, staff, or students have trouble locating or accessing an e-waste recycling bin, they can contact Alan Winkler directly at winkleja@nullwfu.edu to arrange a free pick up. We will pick up any device with a battery or electric cord.


What can you drop in the bins?

  • Cell phones, chargers and accessories
  • MP3 players, iPods, digital cameras
  • CDs, DVDs, CD­Rs, diskettes and virtually all other types of computer tapes
  • Rechargeable batteries and their chargers
  • Hand­held games
  • Computer/printer cords and accessories
  • Regular, non­rechargeable alkaline batteries
  • Computers and printers – send personal computers back to the manufacturer or take them to an electronics recycler like the program at Goodwill; all WFU computers need to be returned to Information Services for repurposing and/or recycling
  • Small printer cartridges (only student small ink jet cartridges)**

**Please take ALL WFU staff and faculty large printer cartridges to the Sustainability Office (Reynolda, Room 101). E-­waste bins are only for student’s personal printer ink cartridge disposal.
