Recycling E-Waste

IU holds an annual e-waste collection event in early to mid April.  Students, staff, faculty, and the general public are all invited to attend this event.  Most types of household electronic waste can be brought to this event and recycled free of charge.  Apple sponsors the event.  For more information on recycling electronic waste, please visit
