The Electronic Media (e.Media) Recycling Program was established in 2007 to give departments and individuals an opportunity to dispose of end-of-use electronic media in a responsible way. The e.Media bins have compartments for these items as well as compartments for small printer cartridges and batteries. Please put your material into the proper disposal compartment.

What is acceptable in the e.Media bins

Small quantities of the following:

  • Non-confidential electronic media: CDs, DVDs, videotapes, audiotapes, computer disks, and their cases
  • Small personal electronics: cell phones, pagers, PDAs, smart phones, and small electronics
  • Inkjet and bubble jet printer cartridges
  • Batteries: alkaline, carbon, zinc, lithium, nickel-cadmium, nickel, metal hydride, and silver oxide

What is not acceptable in the e.Media bins

Where to recycle your e.Media on campus
