See our detailed list of accepted items. Recycling of e-waste at SLU is safe and certified: Missouri Recycling Center  &  Cartridges for Kids.

E-Waste Recycling safely recycles appliances and electronics by recovering rare materials that can be reused instead of lost to landfills and incinerators. Recycling reduces the number of harmful materials that enter the environment, such as lead and heavy metals.



Appliance & Bulk Electronics Recycling

Have something you want to get rid of now?

Place a service request to have it picked up by Facilities Services.

Saint Louis University is dedicated to keeping hazardous materials from entering landfills. To do so, Facilities Services has developed a partnership with Midwest Recycling Center (MRC), a nationally certified electronics recycling hauler. A space is provided at Earhart Hall for the storage of larger recyclable items.  In addition, Facilities Services offers an "anything with a cord" annual recycling drive that is open to the entire campus and St. Louis community to dispose of broken/unwanted electronics, appliances, etc. in a more environmentally friendly manner. 

* MRC provides Saint Louis University with a Certificate of Proper Recycling, which documents what materials transferred ownership at each pickup. 

Accepted items include:

Recycling Media with ACT 

ACT recycles VHS tapes, CDs, DVDS, Blue-Rays, and virtually all of the plastic storage cases for these tapes and discs. ACT is unable to recycle the white vinyl (Disney-style) VHS cases. Fees to recycle media are based on the weight of the products to be recycled.
