City offers year-round e-waste disposal

May 22, 2018

University Park residents can dispose of unwanted electronics free of charge at the City’s waste transfer station. The City is partnering with Global Asset to dispose of the items listed below in a safe and environmentally sustainable fashion. The process also ensures that all personal data contained on the disposed of materials is destroyed.

Disposal is easy and free. Residents can visit the City’s waste transfer station at 2525 University Blvd. (just east of North Central Expressway) from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. All items must be placed inside a large marked container that is located inside the gated facility. Before placing the items in the container, residents will be asked to verify their University Park address by showing a valid driver license, other government ID or current utility bill.  

Accepted e-waste materials
 
  • TVs, computers, laptops, monitors, printers
  • Home & mobile phones
  • VCRs & DVD players
  • Fax machines & corded consumer electronics
Items not accepted

Global Asset processes e-waste materials at their local facility in accordance with the strictest privacy laws and regulations, including the Federal Privacy Act, HIPPA, and state legislation. Global Asset also meets the Department of Defense and National Security Agency requirements for purging information from computer hard drives.
