In conjunction with Waste Reduction Week, OCAD's Sustainability Task Force invites OCAD students, faculty and staff to exchange or recycle outdated electronics.

Many people have the knowledge, but do not have the means to properly recycle technology. Over the course of two days, the OCAD community can bring in outdated electronics and either leave it for another person to reuse or to have it properly recycled.

Drop off old mobile phones, computers and related items (including peripherals like keyboards, mice, cables, monitors, printers, PDAs etc.), old TVs*, VCRs or other entertainment devices, as well as old batteries and printer cartridges. What can be reused will be salvaged by those that want it, while non-salvageable will be collected by Greentec for proper dismantlement, salvage, recycling and disposal.

Please note that all personal data should be erased from devices prior to drop off.

*Older wooden-boxed televisions cannot be accepted.

Come by to pick up information on living a more sustainable lifestyle, and your chance to win green prizes or giveaways!

IT Service and Campus Life are actively seeking modest sponsorships from vendors and other partners to cover associated costs for the event.

The Green Exchange is organized by OCAD’s Sustainability Task Force, and generously supported by the Office the of President, Office of the Vice-President, Finance & Administration, OCADSU, IT Services, the Service Bureau, Campus Life & Career Services, AV & Imaging Services, Human Resources, Admissions & Recruitment, Green Palette, Xerox, Bullfrog Power, Zerofootprint, IBM, Loblaws, Mountain Equipment Co-op, Aboveground Art Supplies and Toronto Hydro.
