E-waste, or “electronic waste,” can be recycled easily at Harvard.
Recycling e-waste ensures that hazardous and toxic materials are disposed of properly.
Clear, blue, e-waste collection tubes can be found in locations across campus. In addition to the blue tubes, departments may request white e-waste buckets for their offices from Harvard Campus Services Recycling and Waste Services, who also manage pick up and disposal.
This program encourages the Harvard community to recycle smaller, handheld e-waste including: Light bulbs, batteries, PDAs and cell phones, chargers and adapters, electrical cords, and CDs.
For large e-waste please consider reusing or re-selling. When no reuse or re-sale is feasible please contact your building manager for proper recycling disposal. Check out these e-waste guidelines from Harvard Campus Services Recycling and Waste Management.
