The University of Saint Francis invites you to recycle your outdated or broken electronics at North Campus, 2702 Spring Street, on Saturday, October 31 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.


All residents are invited to participate (no businesses, please). There are no fees, but cash donations will be accepted to support student environmental initiatives. One “carload” per person. The university has partnered with Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s most recently approved/certified electronic recycler, ACE Recycling, located on Ardmore Avenue in Fort Wayne. Action Environmental will once again donate transportation services.

Accepted items for recycling include personal computers, monitors, keyboards, laptops, mice, cables, computer printers, desktop fax machines, desktop scanners, desktop copiers, surge protectors, microwaves, cell phones, VHS players, DVD players, and stereo equipment (no TVs or appliances).

This is the university’s third electronics recycling event. In the first two efforts, 17,500 pounds of electronics were collected from the community for responsible recycling.

The university will also accept bicycle donations for the Tour de Francis student bicycle loan program and new or gently used shoes for donation to needy individuals worldwide through the Soles4Souls initiative.

For more information, please contact Trina Herber at 260-399-7700, ext. 8134.

The University of Saint Francis, founded in 1890, is a comprehensive university in the Catholic Franciscan tradition, offering undergraduate and graduate programs to more than 2,100 students from a broad geographic region.
