E-Waste Recycling Events

Do you have old electronics, appliances or batteries that you’d like to recycle in an environmentally responsible manner?

Dallas College is hosting a series of free e-Waste Recycling events at our seven campuses in the upcoming months. You’ll be able to recycle computers, network and communications devices, CRTs and LCDs, point of sale equipment, wires and cables, other office equipment, consumer goods, batteries, appliances, and audio and video equipment.

Most of the items can be recycled at no cost; however, there is a charge by the vendor for certain items that is used to cover the cost of environmentally responsible disposal. See the Disposal Fees section below for prices.

These events are offered by Dallas College as a community service.


Note to Dallas College Employees: This event is for personal items only. Dallas College’s contracted vendor must be used to recycle Dallas College equipment.
