Reuse and Recycle Electronic Waste

U-M Best Practice

  • Give older but still working computers to other U-M departments
    • Post offerings to the U-M eCycle mail group
    • File an official transfer of the computer asset to the new department via email
  • Properly sanitize and dispose of unusable equipment
  • If your equipment can no longer be used, send it to U-M Property Disposition to be disposed of properly
  • Be sure to include all peripheral devices, cables and media
  • Responsibly recycle obsolete equipment

To schedule the pickup of e-waste accumulated up to one year, contact Occupational Safety and Environmental Health.
