This is a friendly reminder that we CANNOT accept your home electronics, batteries, or any other personal items for recycling at UCAR. Please take advantage of the excellent recycling resources in the community for all your personal electronics, batteries, and other recyclables. If you have questions about how to recycle items, Sustainability staff are happy to answer them.
Need to recycle a work item? Visit the Sustainability website for information on recycling electronics, batteries, mobile phones, data tapes and CDs, books, and more. Remember, work with your Division Property Administrator (DPA) on disposing of any items with property tags, such as computers and smartphones.
This is a selection of Colorado Front Range resources. Sustainability staff are happy to help you locate additional resources in your area. Be wary of businesses with "free" electronics recycling events, as some simply send materials oversees. Look for eStewards certification
