DU Students Recycling

What We Recycle


The University takes the initiative to responsibly dispose of unwanted equipment.

Our equipment must be disposed of in an ethical manner, one that protects both the environment and the people involved in the recycling efforts. Our practices must also be fiscally responsible, comply with all applicable state and federal regulations, and insure that all future liability for disposed equipment is eliminated.


  1. Unwanted, unused, obsolete and broken electronic equipment should not be stored on campus for more than 120 days. 

  2. Expenses incurred for the responsible disposal of this equipment must be absorbed by the department, or a hardship case presented to the Budget Office.

As a rule, all software and data must be removed from computer hard drives before they are recycled. This includes Office and Windows operating systems. Contact IT at 303-871-4700 for assistance.
