SHERMAN, TEXAS-Austin College will hold an "e-waste" recycling event open to the public on Saturday, February 4, from 9 a.m. to noon, at 1318 East Pacific Street (the old Sherman Wire building, approximately two blocks south of Austin College's Apple Stadium). A recycling truck in the parking lot will accept unwanted electrical equipment and materials for recycling. All members of the community are welcome to drop off electronic items.

The recycling is free, except for more than two-per-car CRT monitors and/or non-flat-screen TVs, which will have a disposal fee of $7 each for the CRT monitors and $15 each for TVs. The first two of each may be recycled at no charge. These items contain hazardous materials and are a breakage hazard so require special handling to remove toxins before other materials in the items can be recycled.

A wide variety of items can be recycled-anything with a power cord or on/off button. Power cords, surge protectors, USB flash drives, DVDs, CDs, videotapes, and cassette tapes also can be recycled. "If it runs on electricity, we take it," event organizers summarize.

The College is working with EWD, E-Waste Disposal of Dallas, to ensure proper processing.

The items collected will be reviewed for possible reuse or refurbishing, which applies to about 20 to 30 percent of the items. Some items are refurbished; others are broken down at the recycling facility for parts and materials. Raw materials such as steel, aluminum, copper, glass, and plastics are recovered and processed.

Austin College Thinking Green is part of the College's commitment to sustainability and responsible stewardship as part of the President's Climate Commitment. The program emphasizes lifestyle changes such as recycling.

For more information about e-recycling, contact Austin College biology lab coordinator Kim Snipes at knipes@austincollege.edu or joanmeeks@ewastegroup.net.

Austin College is a leading national independent liberal arts college located north of Dallas in Sherman, Texas. Founded in 1849, making it the oldest institution of higher education in Texas operating under original charter and name, the college is related by covenant to the Presbyterian Church (USA). Recognized nationally for academic excellence in the areas of international education, pre-professional training, and leadership studies, Austin College is one of 40 schools profiled in Loren Pope's influential book Colleges That Change Lives.
