Electronics Waste, Battery, & Printer/Toner Cartridge Recycling Drop Off

Please see the map below for locations, or use the directions feature in our "Put Waste In Its Place" search engine.


When disposing of electronics, please ensure that you have wiped all personal data from devices with data storage.  Villanova owned devices with a VU tag should be processed through UNIT, and not placed in the electronics waste recycling bins.  


For battery recycling, please be sure to use supplied tape dispenser to tape battery terminals before discarding batteries in the bin.  Also, please DO NOT DISPOSE OF SWOLLEN OR DAMAGED BATTERIES in the battery recycling bins.  Instead, please contact Environmental Health & Safety for proper disposal.


In the Printer/Toner Cartridge recycling compartment, we will accept full or empty ink cartridges, waste ink cartridges, printer drum cartridges, etc.  Please just remove any cardboard or plastic packaging and recycle those items in a single-stream recycling bin instead
