E-Waste Recycling

E-Waste Recycling @ Tyndale

Tyndale works with Shift Recycling to facilitate collection of e-waste materials on campus from students, staff and faculty. There is no cost associated with disposing of your e-waste at Tyndale; from old 8-track tapes to defective LCD monitors, there is no cost to you.

Why Recycle?

Most electronic devices contain toxic substances such as lead, mercury and other heavy metals that, if not disposed of correctly, can pose a health risk to people and/or damage wildlife habitat. By bringing your outdated, defective, or unwanted electronic devices to Tyndale for recycling you can ensure that they will be kept out of the landfill and illegal international trade.

Where to Recycle

E-waste recycling bins are located in the sub-basement E100 to allow for convenient disposal of small to medium sized items such as batteries, cell phones or computer monitors. For large items such as desktop towers, CRT monitors or televisions please email ewaste [at] tyndale [dot] ca (subject: Request%3A%20Large%20item%20drop%20off) to arrange for a drop-off time.

What to Recycle

Please refer to the complete list of accepted e-waste items.

Data Security

Shift Recycling guarantees that any data contained on devices they receive will be destroyed using industry standard practices and software. In the case that it cannot be destroyed electronically, it will be physically destroyed. Shift Recycling will produce a Certificate of Destruction documenting data destruction by unique identifiers such as serial numbers.

Tracking our Progress

Shift Recycling will provide a certificate of recycling to certify that we have disposed of our corporate and consumer grade e-waste in accordance with applicable provincial and federal policies and regulations.

In addition to the certificate of recycling, Tyndale will also receive diversion tracking information which demonstrates the positive environmental effects our e-waste recycling efforts have made.
