Appliances and Bulk Electronics and Annual E-Waste Drive

See our detailed list of accepted items. Safe, certified recycling of e-waste at SLU is performed by Midwest Recycling Center (MRC).

Recycling electronic waste, such as appliances and electronics, recovers rare materials that can be reused instead of lost to landfills and incinerators. E-waste 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, a nationally certified electronics recycling hauler. Space is provided at Earhart Hall for the storage of larger recyclable items. In addition, Facilities Services offers an "anything with a cord" annual e-recycling drive that is open to the SLU campuses 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.
