Electronic Waste

Tomorrow night I'm going to talk to the residents of Rowell Hall about electronic waste. In preparation for this, I was doing a bit of web research and came across this great quick film clip -- one of many on GOOD Magazine.
What do we do with our e-waste at Champlain? We collect it and send it along to Good Point Recycling in Middlebury, an ethically responsible e-waste recycling facility. All of your electric gadgets, batteries, etc. can be dropped off in our e-waste collection tubes. When Champlain upgrades computer equipment, usable items are often donated to places like COTS. No-longer-functioning items are also recycled with Good Point. For those of you looking to dispose of other e-waste, check out the guidelines on the CSWD website.
