Electronic Waste, e-waste, and e-scrap are all terms used to describe unwanted electronic products. According to recent reports the United States generates over 3.4 million tons of electronic waste every year. To address this growing issue the Missouri Department of Natural Resources recommends residents of the State of Missouri explore options like recycling or donating unused electronic devices. For personal items, contact Sustain Mizzou for information regarding the next recycling event. Electronic devices purchased with University funds should be sent to University of Missouri Surplus Properties (whether working or not).
