USD’s Green Team staff will be collecting e-waste that includes anything with a plug that is unused, obsolete or not working. Acceptable items include:
Items that will not be accepted include:

E-waste contains heavy metals such as lead, mercury, chromium, cadmium and zinc that contaminate our soil and water, and is responsible for 70 percent of all heavy metals found in landfills today. An Environmental Protection Agency report says E-waste in landfills will continue to grow. Help do your part to protect our environment by safely recycling your old electronics at this free public event.
Items that cannot be reused will be scraped and used for parts. Reusable items may be donated or sold to low-income households.
Certified data destruction of devices is available and certifications will be sent via email. For further questions, contact Jennifer Razo, Sustainability Supervisor at AllGreenRecycling.com or (949) 936-5392.
