Electronics recycling or e-cycling, applies to consumer and business electronic equipment that is at the end of its life cycle, including computers, peripheral devices, and analog electronics. E-cycling is a better alternative than discarding electronics because it removes toxins from landfills, recycles natural resources, and is creating new industries. The Univ. of San Diego developed an electronics recycling program that generated over $200,000 in revenue and 750,000 pounds of e-waste (Catanzaro and Morreal, 2014). At the Univ. of Pennsylvania, a program was created in the residence halls to incentivize students to recycle traditional and electronic goods, support local sustainable businesses, and promote a culture of sustainability (Goresko and Rowland, 2014).
