The E-Waste Collection Center is the only non-profit collection center in San Diego that accepts all electronics, working and broken. This collection center offers a free drop off service and is a one-stop location where people can drop off their old electronics six days a week. Free pick-ups are now being offered to local businesses and organizations in San Diego for a tax deductible donation. Residential pick-ups are also available for a small fee. The collection center offers the San Diego community a safe, secure, and socially responsible way to dispose of e-waste through resale, refurbish, and recycle.
The USD E-Waste Collection Center thanks San Diego Gas and Electric for their generous Environmental Champions grant to support the Linda Vista E-waste Education Program (LVEEP). LVEEP was created to educate local youth about the necessity of proper e-waste recycling and the importance of environmental stewarship.
The University of San Diego supports the re-using and recycling of electronic waste, which limits pollution and reduces the need to mine for raw material. Our nonprofit organization strives to keep all e-waste in California to ensure safe, secure and socially responsible recycling. Proceeds from this collection center go to creating student jobs and to the Office of Sustainability to promote sustainability.
