Facilities Management, Environment Health & Safety, the Office of Sustainability, and the Office of Procurement are working together to host a hazardous materials and electronic waste drop-off event for the campus.  Instead of throwing those used batteries and other materials in the trash or dumping chemicals down the drain, bring them to the W&M Hall parking lot on Tuesday, March 29, 2016 from 11am to 2pm and we will collect them to be recycled and/or disposed of in an environmentally safe manner.  Anyone with a W&M ID can bring in items from the list below for disposal (for record keeping purposes, we will be checking IDs, so please bring your ID with you). 

Students, considered a part of campus for purposes of the College’s hazardous waste contracts, can bring in anything on the list linked above, even if you live off campus.  Now is a great opportunity to properly dispose of any cleaning chemicals, aerosol cans, etc, before you move out for the semester.  We will also accept broken electronics.  If you have working electronics that you just don’t want any more please donate them to a local charity. A reminder that Swem Library has year round collection points for dry batteries, cell phones and toner cartridges.

 For faculty and staff, the items must be from campus; for example, you can bring in an old computer from your office, but not the gallons of paint you have in your garage at home.  We will take any and all College-tagged equipment ready for removal, and a Procurement representative will be standing by to ensure the item has been properly checked out according to state asset standards.
