During the month of March, safely recycle your old technology gadgets at the DoIT Help Desk, located at 1210 W. Dayton Street. You’ll receive a $5 gift card to the DoIT Tech Store and help UW-Madison in the RecycleMania challenge. One gift card per person, please.

RecycleMania is a nationwide friendly competition among colleges and universities to encourage students to recycle properly. RecycleMania’s goal is that with a little friendly school competition, colleges and universities can educate students on the big difference that reducing waste by recycling can make.

DoIT accepts personally-owned computers, monitors, CD drives, hard drives, printers and CDs/DVDs. Always delete sensitive data before recycling items. For university-owned equipment, see SWAP for details on how to properly dispose of items.

The DoIT Help Desk will receive items from 7:45 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. In addition, there will be collection pods available for electronic drop-off at Tripp Circle, Sellery Dock and Lot 50 on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
