Federal regulations now classify electronic circuit board containing equipment and computer monitors and television sets (Cathode Ray Tube, flat Light Emitting Diode or plasma) as regulated universal waste and landfills can no longer accept those items for disposal. UAA departments within the Municipality of Anchorage are required to deliver to or request pick-up of the items from Surplus Property (786-1959).
Effective immediately, Custodial Services will no longer pick the items up as trash. Surplus Property will arrange to recycle the items through licensed vendors and recyclers in accordance with the new regulations.
Community campuses should research local options and develop plans to assure proper recycling of electronic circuit boards and computer monitors and televisions.
