April 19, 2010


Thursday, April 22, 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
University Services Building parking lot (immediately west of the Huntsman Center)
Free and open to the campus community and all Salt Lake City and County residents

Take advantage of this opportunity to properly and easily dispose of your unwanted or obsolete electronics items at no charge. Please bring personal items only; businesses are not eligible to participate, and University equipment must be retired through University Surplus and Salvage.

Many discarded electronics contain hazardous materials, and as the fastest growing waste stream in the U.S., nearly 400 million units a year will be discarded by 2010. Obsolete electronic equipment isn't usually accepted by thrift stores or charities, so responsible disposal of reusable components is sometimes challenging. Take advantage of this opportunity! Sponsors include the Salt Lake City Corporation and the Salt Lake Valley Health Department. For event details, visit www.sustainability.utah.edu.

All items collected will be responsibly recycled by Metech, a certified e-steward company. Learn more about electronics disposal issues at www.ban.org. This event is one of the many campus events celebrating the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. Visit http://earthday.org/ for more information.
