We recycle anything with a cord!
One-day collection event: Annual E-Waste Drive
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.
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.
