E-Waste Recycling

The next E-Waste collection will take place on April 23rd, 2024 from 7:00am to 1:00pm in the Student Center Circle Drive.



Electronic waste is difficult to dispose of properly because it is complicated to recycle and can create contamination as it deteriorates. To address this, the Office of Sustainability holds an annual E-Waste Recycling Drive. The entire UH community is invited to bring acceptable e-waste to these collections to dispose of them in the most sustainable way. Over the years, these events have diverted multiple tons of e-waste from landfills.

A list of acceptable e-waste items can be found below. If you miss an event, the Office encourages you to save items for the next year. If the need is urgent, please reach out to a private e-waste recycler for your needs.
