Infographic: University E-Waste at Michigan State University
University e-waste has been a hot topic in recent years, and it’s no wonder why. University policies often encourage frequent replacement of new computers for departments, and the amount of laptops and tablets present on campus grow year after year.
But what happens to old electronics when they’re replaced? How can universities ensure proper stewardship of electronic assets when they’ve reached the end of their useful life? What if your university could extend the useful life of electronic assets?
To answer these questions and more, we talked to Tim Heckaman from Michigan State University (MSU). In addition to his title as IT Administrator for the MSU Surplus Store, he’s also the Webmaster for the University Surplus Property Association (USPA) website.
