Do you have useless electronic devices (such as broken cell phones, old batteries, or empty printer cartidges) that you’re not sure what to do with?

Thanks to Facilities Management’s Sustainability Program, along with advice and help from the UNB E-Waste task force, UNB now has three E-Waste recycling bins on the Fredericton campus to make it easy for you to dispose of unwanted personal electronic devices.

Help do your part to make UNB and our community a little greener by bringing your e-waste to one of the bins located:

UNB E-Waste bin

  • Outside the ITS department in Head Hall (D level)
  • In the University Bookstore entry way/lobby
  • In the main (Commons) area of the Harriet Irving library (HIL)

Before dropping off your e-waste, don’t forget:

  1. All items/devices should be wiped of any data before being disposed of in the E-Waste bins.
  2. These bins are for personal devices only; all UNB-owned electronic waste should still be handled through your departmental level 1 or ITS.
