University employees can recycle their personal cell phones by sending them to the Office of Waste Reduction and Recycling via campus mail at CB #1805. Work cell phones are considered State property, and are recycled through Surplus Property.

All University-owned computer equipment that is no longer wanted (including non-working equipment) should be taken to University Surplus Property. The computer equipment will then be sent to State Surplus property. Working computer equipment is sold through State Surplus Property, and non-working equipment is repaired for use in North Carolina schools. Computer equipment that cannot be repaired is recycled.
Personal computer equipment and peripherals can be recycled at the Student Union. Electronic waste bins are located by the first floor presentation area and the second floor lounge by Alpine Bagel. Larger equipment should be recycled at one of Orange County’s convenience centers or reuse non-profits.
Surplus Property also provides shredding and recycling for video tapes with confidential material. The cost is $0.10 per tape. Your department may want to contract with a document destruction company, some of which are listed on the confidential paper recycling page.
