Where can I recycle my techno trash?
UVM's Recycling and Waste Management program has techno trash bins around campus. Check out the Techno Trash page here for a map of bin locations and guidelines of what can be thrown in these bins.
"Techno trash" includes pretty much everything but the computer itself: storage devices, CD's, floppy disks, hard drives, Zip disks, cell phones & accessories, iPods, empty print cartridges, cables, cords, parts of circuit boards, video tapes, PDA's, etc.
Please don't throw "techno trash" in the regular garbage or recycling bins. Keep these materials separate so we can recycle valuable resources, keep hazardous materials out of the landfill and ensure protection of privacy since the recycling company shreds the electronic media we send them.
