Electronics and Dead Battery Collection for Human-I-T Partnership
Updated: Aug 23, 2022
In the Winter semester of 2022, BLUElab Metro successfully hosted an on-campus electronics and dead battery collection during finals week in an effort to divert move-out waste from landfills. We partnered with Detroit-based nonprofit Human-I-T, whose mission is to reduce the digital divide by equipping communities with access to devices, internet access, digital skills training, and tech support. The usable electronics we collected will be repaired and refurbished for this purpose, while any remaining or unusable parts will be recycled along with the dead batteries.
