Electronic Waste

You are here

Lehigh now collects and recycles electronic waste (e-waste) owned by Lehigh at any time throughout the year.  Faculty/staff may also bring in their unwanted personally-owned desktop, laptop, and tablet computers for disposal.  In 2017, Lehigh recycled approximately 16 metric tons of e-waste!  

 

Where Do I Recycle Electronic Waste?

  • For larger items, you can contact Glenn Strause, Surplus Property Manger, via ghs2@lehigh.edu and a courier will be dispatched to your location to pickup and responsibly recycle any unwanted electronic items. This enhanced level of service is brought to you by LU University Business Services. 

  • For smaller items, you can dispose of them in one of the electronic waste bins with purple signage placed around campus. See poster below for which items can go in these bins versus what Surplus Property will take directly.

Note: Although the disposal team will erase hard disk drives, you should erase your own drives for added peace of mind.  Instructions for erasing your hard disk drives.
