As part of our ongoing commitment to waste reduction, Carleton has partnered with Electrobac to provide the community with small electronic waste and ink cartridge recycling options on campus. These waste bins are located at:

  • Athletics Centre – opposite Tim Hortons
  • University Centre – adjacent to entrance to Roosters
  • Residence Commons – 2nd floor

These bins accept the following items:

  • Chargers and cables
  • Peripherals – memory cards etc
  • Small electronics – cell phones, chargers etc
  • Ink cartridges
  • Other small electronics

The Manager of Sustainability Programs, Philip Mansfield said that ‘this new recycling program will offer a convenient and easy option to recycle a wide number of e-waste and printer cartridges’ and ‘reduce the amount of such waste currently not being recycled and going to landfill.’
