Recycling Responsibly

Please Recycle Image

Due to the rapid advancement of technology, electronic equipment is the largest growing category of solid waste. Cell phones and computers are discarded each year in the U.S. These and other similar electronics may possibly end up in our planet’s landfills, contaminating them with harmful chemicals contained in electronic waste (eWaste).

Through sponsorship of Apple, the university has been able to sponsor Earth-friendly government/public drop-off recycling programs such as Hawai‘i’s Education & Government eWaste Disposal Days 2012; any future dates for drop-off recycling of electronics through the university will be announced at that program‘s webpage.
