This service is being offered free of charge, except for a $10 fee per television and a $5 fee per computer monitor. The college's Sustainability Committee is working in conjunction with Regional Computer Recycling and Recovery to recycle in an environmentally sound fashion the lead solder, cadmium, beryllium, lead and other hazardous wastes found in electronics. Plastic components are reused in new products.
