The Environmental Action Committee of Mount St. Joseph University is proud to sponsor a community electronics recycling day on Saturday, September 23rd, in the West parking lot of the university. There are no residency requirements to drop off items and ANY item with an electrical cord will be accepted. This includes all TVs (any size), refrigerators and all other household appliances (microwaves, washers, vacuum cleaners, etc.), cell phones, game systems, iPods, Blackberries, MP3 players, digital cameras, GPS units, e-readers, all computers and related accessories (such as keyboards, printers, portable hard drives, and scanners), VCR/DVD/CD players, fax machines, copiers, surge protectors, power cables and charging cords, electronic wiring, and satellite components.

A $15 donation is requested for each cathode ray tube (CRT) TV/monitor dropped off for recycling and a $25 donation is requested for each large TV (consoles, large flat screens, and rear projection TVs). For those without TVs to drop off, a $10 donation is requested per vehicle. These donations help to defray both disposal fees for the hazardous waste components of the items to be recycled and transportation costs.

RecycleForce, a non-profit from Indianapolis, will de-manufacture these items and shred all hard drives to address any privacy concerns. The plastics and metals are then collected, packaged, and sold to build new components, while all toxic elements, such as lead and mercury, will be disposed of properly to avoid environmental contamination. RecycleForce provides transitional jobs to formerly incarcerated people, helping them to rebuild their lives and increase their chances of sustained future employment.

If you have questions, please call event coordinator Colleen McSwiggin at 513-244-4864.
