Recycling Electronics

When OIT upgrades computers, printers, projectors, etc., the old equipment is recycled. OIT contracts with a licensed and certified electronics recycler to ensure compliance with the applicable local, state, and federal regulations. For devices that have hard-drives (data storage device), the drive is erased using a Department of Defense approved method and the drive is destroyed. The remaining components of the electronic device are sorted and reused or the pieces are separated and precious minerals are recovered for reuse in new electronics.

New York State requires that a C7 Notification Letter be filed with the DEC that a legitimate recycler is processing the product. Failure to properly recycle electronics can lead to significant fines for the college.

If your department has old electronics that need to be recycled (old monitors, TVs, stereos, iPods, Fax machines, etc.), please contact the OIT Help Desk at x8016 or to request that the equipment be picked up for recycling. 

Note: Our recycler can only accept college property for recycling. For more information on recycling personal electronics please visit:
