Electronic Waste Collections Days
Thank you to our partners, The District and the City of Bloomington, for a successful E-Waste Collection Days event. Nearly 1,000 vehicles brought 141,070 lbs of electronics from Bloomington-area homes, businesses and schools to this year's collection days that were held on May 10-11, 2013. If you missed this event, but still have electronics to recycle, contact The District to learn more about their new, free e-waste disposal program. See below under Resouces for other local e-waste re-use and recycling options. IU departments should contact IU Surplus for a free electronic waste pickup.
