E-Cycle Mania on Campus Wednesday

Don't let those out-dated electronics end up in a landfill.

Kent State University has partnered with a non-profit operation dedicated to the environmentally friendly disposal of end-of-life electronic equipment. 

Take those items that have a cord and dispose of them with the recycling company RET3

Collection points will be available at two KSU campus locations:

  • The Tri Towers Service Desk area (March 13 from 8 a.m. until midnight March 14)
  • Administrative Service Building (ASB) dock area -- ASB dock area is ideal for those that wish unload directly from a vehicle. (March 13 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.)

The effort is a continuation of a RecycleMania competition "where colleges and universities strive to reduce waste and increase recycling," according to a statement posted by the university

Here's a list of accepted electronics:

  • Personal computers
  • Laptop computers
  • Servers and storage devices
  • Mainframe equipment
  • Monitors
  • Docking stations
  • Floppy drives
  • DVD/CD burners
  • Circuit boards
  • Scanners
  • Copiers
  • Printers
  • Cables, wires, extension cords
  • Digital cameras
  • Cellular phones
  • DVD players
  • VCRs

*Televisions are not accepted. University-owned equipment will also not be accepted.

Hello! The RET3 recyclers weren't there when I went to the Tri Towers Information Desk this afternoon. The nice guy in the Tech Spot looked all over with me and said that he saw them yesterday but not today. The Tech Spot was very happy to take my old computers, but couldn't take the key board and wires. Does anyone know if the RET3 people are somewhere else today? Thanks! Kara
