Don't Trash It, Recycle It

Free Electronics Recycling At All University of Phoenix Utah Locations

Public Can Bring In Cell Phones, Old TVs, Keyboard, Computers And More


April 9, 2009, Salt Lake City – If you have a drawer full of old cell phones, an old

analog TV, old computers, or even a small appliance…like a toaster, you can drop it off for free recycling at any Utah University of Phoenix Campus during the week of April 13-17,

 (Monday – Friday) from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.


Combine it with your daily commute.  University campuses are located right off the I-15 freeway in Murray, Taylorsville, Pleasant Grove, North Davis and St. George.  Once all of the items are collected, they will be shipped off to a recycling company on April 22, the official observance of Earth Day. 


This will be the second year of electronics recycling for the University.  Last year, the University collected 3,500 pounds of computers, microwaves, keyboards, and even one of those “fossilized” overhead projectors.  Remember those?
