We reduce, reuse and recycle

UNB’s colours are red and black, but did you know they’re also green?

When you bring your old electronics down to the ITS repair shop, we make sure they’re properly disposed of and that it’s done in a safe way. Our partnership with E-Waste Solutions allows over 85% of UNB’s computer equipment to be recycled, keeping it out of the landfill.

Check out everything ITS recycled during the month of May:

  • 58 monitors
  • 489 pounds of plastic
  • 325 pounds of power supplies
  • 180 pounds of motherboards
  • 129 pounds of cable
  • 131 pounds of hard drives
  • 50 pounds of batteries
