Techno Trash

Media formats change over time, and the campus has a growing need to manage microfiche, CD’s, DVD’s, video tapes, and cassette tapes.  Through Kard Recycling, UWM has been able to recycle these items at a nominal cost.  This program is just for the media; all other electronic waste hardware is handled through the Surplus program.  Since most of these materials come from our Library, the collection for techno trash is handled by the Facilities Manager of the Golda Meir Library.

 

To date: 5,065 lbs+ of techno trash have been averted from the landfill through this program
