UAA Recycling teamed up with Total Reclaim to host an electronics recycling event for the Anchorage community on our campus Saturday, June 15, 2019. The event collected more than 4.5 tons of e-waste in just four hours-an incredible success!

Here's a detailed look at what was recycled:

  • Assorted electronics - 3,054 lbs.
  • CRT TVs and monitors - 2,807 lbs.
  • LCD TVs and monitors - 1,405 lbs.
  • CPUs - 1,902 lbs.
  • Total received - 9,168 lbs.

UAA General Support Services/Recycling and Total Reclaim extend our appreciation to everyone who participated in this event. Not only does it help get e-waste out of your house, it helps keep it out of our landfills.
