Responsible Electronics Recycling
MCLA works with Good Point Recycling (www.retroworks.net) from Middlebury, Vermont to recycling our out-of-date electronics. Good Point is certified and has a national reputation for socially and environmentally responsible electronic waste recycling with an expertise in "fair trade." The toxic material in the electronics is removed and reused safely.
The most recent electronics recycling pick up was on December 16, 2012, coordinated by the MCLA Sustainability Committee,
Facilities Department, and Computer Support Services. Good Point picked up almost four tons of
electronic waste including computers, old-style monitors,
televisions, printers, printer cartridges, DVD players, microwaves, and other assorted items. The material included both college and community
contributions. Thanks to MCLA facilities staff, students, and faculty who
loaded up the truck! For more information check out the web story.
If you missed this electronics collection, remember that you can bring almost any electronics to Best Buy for no charge. The even includes televisions as long at they are 32 inch or smaller. And watch for the next MCLA electronics recycling pick up, possibly in April or May 2012.
