E-waste, U recycle Day

Members of the University of Utah and Salt Lake communities will have their chance to divert resources from the landfill on U Recycle Day, which takes place on Thursday, April 18 from 7:30 a.m.-12 p.m. in the south end of the Rice-Eccles Stadium parking lot. People can drop off electronic waste, several hard-to-recycle materials, and personal documents for shredding, as well as donate non-perishable food items to the on-campus Feed U Pantry. Changes in the recycling market will mean fewer opportunities for free recycling collections this year, so don’t miss out. Click here for a list of accepted items.
