We recycle anything with a cord!
|Year-round collection is available for:||One-day collection event:|
|Appliances and Bulk Electronics and||Annual E-Waste Drive|
|Small Electronics||Date: March 28, 2018|
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.
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.
Accepted items include:
- Most items powered by batteries or electricity
- Detailed list of acceptable items
SLU collects many everyday electronic-waste items that can be recycled but are not considered bulk e-waste. These items include:

- PDAs and tablets/eReaders/notebooks

The program is ongoing and ensures that the items are kept out of landfills.
