The numbers are in! TWU faculty, staff, students and community members came together to divert 1,120 pounds of electronic waste (e-waste) from landfills during IT Solutions’ E-Waste Roundup event in April. Our recycling partner, Computer Crusher, detailed the following waste that was recovered from donations on the Denton campus:
- 31.92 lbs. toxic metals
- 31 lbs. lead
- 23 lbs. aluminum
- 303 lbs. steel
- 0.92 lbs. arsenic
- Plus 1,547 lbs. of GHG emissions reduced
Thank you to all recyclers for participating in this year’s TWU Earth Week event. Recycling electronics responsibly reduces environmental impact and ensures safe and effective destruction of data on used electronics.
If you were unable to participate last month, Computer Crusher welcomes recyclers year-round to their facility in Denton. Drop off information can be found on their website.
