Electronics Recycle Day

Saturday, January 12, 2019

Duchesne Academy is partnering again with TechnoCycle to recycle your unwanted, broken or out of date electronic equipment. If you are replacing electronic items this holiday season, please don't throw away your unwanted used electronics. Bring them to Duchesne to recycle on Saturday, January 12, 2019! In addition to the benefits of disposing of these items in a safe, environmentally friendly manner, your donations are tax deductible!

NOTE: Because our "zero landfill" e-cycler cannot take CRT monitors due to FCC regulations, we have located two places that will take CRT monitors 36" or smaller at certain times.

Will you erase the data off my hard drive or cell phone?

You may donate your unwanted computer just as it is, with confidence. Our district partner, Technocycle, will destroy all data on hard drives, cell phones, and other data bearing devices. They use certified Department of Defense wiping procedures which ensure that no trace of your personal information is left behind. It is the same certified process being used on all District surplus material.

Will anything end up in a landfill?

No! We practice strict No-Landfill policy. Every device recovered will be either sold for reuse or recycled responsibly. This includes any boxes or trash that is included with electronics.
