Dig out your unwanted personal electronics during spring break! The brothers of Zeta Psi, along with the Academic Computing and Communications Center and the Office of Sustainability, invite you to our Electronics Recycling Event.

On Wednesday, April 2 from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm bring your personally owned unwanted electronics to our collection location in the West Concourse of Student Center East (Near the Bowling Alley Entrance) for recycling. Participants will be entered into our raffle and win prizes!

 

Only personally owned equipment can be recycled at this event. Property owned by the State of Illinois will not be accepted. Please see the OBFS Scrap/ Surplus removal for details how to dispose University electronics.

  • Though data-containing devices sent to CRS are sanitized according to NIST 800-88 and Department of Defense standards, we recommend that you sanitize your hard disk drive prior to donating your device.
  • If your device is running MS Windows, you can use Active@ ERASER 4.1 which is freely available via webstore.illinois.edu, or by clicking this direct link.
  • If your device is running Mac OS you can use Disk Utility.
