Texas A&M IT and EIC collecting e-waste this Earth Day
In honor of Earth Day, Texas A&M Information Technology and the Environmental Issues Committee (EIC) are collecting old electronics to prevent toxic e-waste from ending up in local landfills.
Campus members can drop off old batteries, CDs/DVDs, ink cartridges, cables, cell phones and Mp3 players from April 16 - April 27. Collection sites are located in the Student Computing Center, General Services Complex, West Campus Library computer lab, Read computer lab, and Blocker computer lab.
"We hope this campaign teaches the campus that throwing old electronics in the trash harms our community," said EIC co-chair Amanda Cernovich. "We collected 80 pounds of e-waste last year and want to beat that number this year."
