SUNY INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY AT UTICA/ROMEELECTRONIC WASTE POLICY

Electronic waste cannot be disposed of in the regular trash and must be managed in accordance with the NYS DEC rules (NYCRR 371.1) due to the content of lead, silver, cadmium and other heavy metals.

To dispose of electronic waste in the proper manner, you should forward a work order to Facilities to arrange for pick-up. To increase efficiency, each department/school should temporarily store a number of electronic units prior to requesting a pick-up. No charge to the department for this service.

ELECTRONIC WASTE POLICY (CONTINUED)

Useable electronic computer equipment, with processor and/or monitor in working order can be handled as surplus equipment as described in the surplus equipment policy.

NOTE: if electronic waste is found in the regular trash stream it will not be picked-up. The EHS Office will be notified and the Dean and/or Department Head of that area will be notified.


Procedure for battery recycling l.jpg

Procedurefor Battery Recycling

  • Some batteries contain enough acid or heavy metals to be considered “hazardous waste”.

  • Not all batteries need to be recycled. Regular “household” or “flashlight” alkaline batteries are now made without heavy metals like mercury & lead and may be thrown away in the regular trash

  • Car batteries are lead-acid batteries and are returned to the manufacturer.
