The holidays are over. Itís the most wonderful time of year to recycle those old electronics.

The Student Environmental Action League (SEAL) at Rochester Institute of Technology is hosting the Third Annual RIT Electronic Waste Recycling Day. This event has been coordinated with RIT Purchasing and Maven Technologies, RITís electronic waste vendor.

Students will drop off electronic devices—obsolete or broken computers, monitors, TVs, microwaves, printers, calculators and VCRs—to recycle. Faculty and staff may recycle RIT devices or bring items from home for a small fee.
