Dead Weight Electronics

After a successful launch last year, students from the Providence Business Administration program are again leading an eWaste recycling initiative—and this year expanding it beyond the campus.

Under the banner Dead Weight Electronics, business students are again volunteering their time to ensure that eWaste is properly and safely recycled.

Their ad, which is currently running in the campus Daily bulletin, reads:

Bring out your dead! Dead Weight Electronics is back for another year, and we need your help! In our previous year, we collected 2 pallets worth of electronics to be recycled.
This year we are expanding to other communities and need your help getting there! This is a great way to get involved in an on campus business with potential for field education credit.
For more information please email
