Second on campus e-Waste Disposal Collection day was carried out on 17th August 2017.
The campaign started with a big e-Waste collection bin placed at Sunway University Building foyer from 15th - 17th August 2017 for staff and students to dispose their big e-Waste items.
For smaller e-Waste items such as mobile phones, batteries, chargers, and other electronic components, e-Waste collection bins are available all year long in a few strategic locations in campus and hostels to ease staff and students to dispose.
On the e-Waste collection day, e-Waste collection trucks with standby workers were in the temporary setup booth to collect:
1. office e-Waste items from ITS and Facilities departments,
2. items collected from the big and small e-Waste bins, and
3. other home e-Waste items drove in by staff and students on that day.
This twice yearly event is a joint effort by IT Services, Facilities Services and Safety and Health departments, and SCC (Sunway College Councils) with support of Student Life Department. The collected e-Waste will be properly disposed by a certified e-Waste disposal vendor, approved by (DoE) Department of Environment. This vendor has the same mission as IT Services department in advocate and support restoration of the environment in order to preserve a cleaner and greener environment.
The next e-Waste disposal collection day will be on 18 January 2018.
