Bins for collection of unwanted, obsolete, or nonworking electronic devices were installed in February 2012 in five locations. The bins were created from old, unwanted filing cabinets that otherwise would have been sold as scrap metal. The sheet metal shop of Facilities Services cut appropriate holes to allow a variety of different devices to be collected, and the Facilities Sign Shop printed decals for the various openings and painted the cabinets. Jay Price, recycling coordinator, came up with the idea and the design for collection bins. Calculators in working order were donated to the local nonprofit Calculators to Classrooms. All other electronic waste was sent to REDEMTECH, an E-Stewards Certified company that ensured data security and safe recycling.
