eWaste Recycling



KU IT’s eWaste service provides a way for KU departments to securely and responsibly recycle obsolete, unused or unwanted electronic equipment or data storage devices. All sensitive and proprietary university or customer information is completely removed from computer and thumb drives before disposing of them in an environmentally safe manner. All KU campus departments should use this service for KU-owned and/or operated equipment.

What can be recycled?

Recycled items may include servers, desktops, workstations, thumb drives, cell phones, tapes, printers, monitors, telephony, network gear, peripherals, etc. Electronic testing equipment from research labs may also be recycled once the department removes any hazardous materials or chemicals.



Most items can be disposed of at no cost. Departments will be billed directly to recycle the items listed below. After the customer completes the online eWaste request (see "Access") and the equipment has been disposed of, IT Fiscal Services staff will create and send an invoice to the appropriate department for any applicable charges.

  • CRT Monitor disposal - $5.00 per unit
  • Television disposal - $15.00 standard (plastic shell), $25 console (wood shell)
