Electronic Waste Recycling Day at USM 2013

It's Spring Cleaning Time!

Got some old or unwanted electronics taking up space in your house? Get rid of them the environmentally friendly way! Drop them off at the USM Portland Campus to be recycled between 9a-1p on Saturday, April 22, 2017. This event is FREE, open to the public, and will take place rain or shine!

Many components of household electronics are recyclable and reusable so be sure to bring in anything you are no longer using. Electronics and appliances also often contain chemicals and substances that are hazardous to humans and the environment, so they don't belong in the trash! Please bring in all of your (and your neighbor's, friend's, and family's) unneeded electronics and keep them out of the waste stream.

We will be accepting monetary donations for the Maine Children's Cancer Program at this event - show your appreciation for free recycling by bringing and donating a bit of cash. 

The following items will be accepted and taken to a local recycling facility for FREE:
