Community E-Waste Collection Program

Electronic Waste (E-Waste) Drop-off Event Information

California State Polytechnic University, Pomona is partnering with eWaste Center Inc. to provide a convenient E-Waste recycling solution for the campus and local communities, including businesses. The program is managed by the Environmental Health & Safety Department in cooperation with Facilities Management, as part of the University's overall recycling program.

Hundreds of thousands of computers, monitors, televisions and other electronic items are replaced in California every year. This “E-Waste” contains valuable materials and can be hazardous if not disposed of properly. When you “e-recycle”, you’re helping to protect our environment and create new jobs in California. As of February 8, 2005 it is against the law for households or businesses to dispose of these materials in the regular trash.

WHEN?

Monday - Friday from 08:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Except University Holidays and December 29-31, 2010

Please Call (909) 869-4697 for an Appointment

To drop off E-Waste at dates/times other than listed above, please contact Environmental Health & Safety at (909) 869-4697 or ehs@csupomona.edu.

NOTE: If no authorized state employee is around to take the waste from you, any equipment left will be considered illegally dumped hazardous waste and will be investigated accordingly. Electronic Waste is accepted only during advertised collection dates and times listed above, unless you have made special arrangements with Environmental Health & Safety.
