What is E-waste?
E-waste is any electronic device that uses batteries, a circuit board, or a plug.
Why should we care?
Improper disposal of e-waste can allow toxins enter our water supply, leak toxins into our landfills, and expose harmful fumes and toxins to communities in majority-world countries.
Our Mission Statement
To reduce the effects of electronic waste through recycling, education, and innovation.

Clothes Out Bins
We are collaborating with UCLA Housing to advertise the large Clothes Out Bins provided by the American Textile Recycling Service that will be available on the Hill and off campus during Spring Move-Out (June 2nd-20th). Did you know that these bins collect both gently-used clothing AND e-waste*? Be sure to look out for them when it's time to move out of your residence!
*These bins do not collect batteries. Battery bins are located at the front desks of all the main dorms (Sproul, De Neve, Hedrick, and Rieber)
Check us out!
