Annual E-Waste Recycling Day

The Sustainability Office is kicking off an annual event to collect electronic waste (E-waste) items from students, faculty, and staff in an easy and streamlined manner. Members of the college community can bring in their broken electronics, batteries, old devices, and other electronic items that cannot be traditionally landfilled or recycled due to their toxic chemical contents. Our Ewaste collector, EWASTE+, will be picking up the items from this event.

The 2021 event will be hosted on May 6th, from 12:00-5:00 PM in the Falstaffs Parking Lot, located between Falstaffs and the Annex building. Please email any questions to sustainability@skidmore.edu

A recycling fee for large display devices* will be collected to cover collection costs. Cash or Venmo payment to @SkidEwaste are accepted. Costs are as follows:
*laptops and tablets are not considered display devices and are free

  • A $20 fee for display devices (TVs, monitors, etc.) with screen sizes below 28” diagonal.
  • A $40 fee for any of these devices with screens above 28" diagonal.
  • $0.35/lb for CRT devices like tube televisions (50lb = $17.50, 100lb = $35, etc.)
