Electronics Recycling

Electronic Recycling

Students/faculty/staff can recycle the following "personal" items at either of the Geek locations--no University-owned items may be recycled with us.  Items other than a handheld device (e.g., cell phone, PDA, MP3 player), a printer cartridge, batteries, or cord/cable may require a picture ID to recycle.  We do not pickup items.

Once an item is delivered for recycling, IT Geeks cannot return it to the owner.  Participation in this program constitutes a relinquishment of all rights to the item delivered to IT Geeks.
