Electronic Waste - Ewaste

Electronic waste can be any discarded electronic product or device that is at its end of life, usefulness or is not needed anymore.  

Most commons are:

  • Computers
  • TVs
  • VCR and DVD players
  • Copiers
  • Microwaves and toaster ovens
  • Coffee makers
  • Tablets and phones
  • Extensions cords and power strips

Anything that has an electrical cord or powered with batteries could be considered electronic waste.

All these items need to be surplused, even if they don’t work anymore.  Make sure to fill out the surplus form for pickup.  The surplus department works with UK Recycling to recycle electronic waste, if the item can be re-used or sold. 

Please don’t throw away, even if it is broken.
