Keep your used but unwanted electronic devices out of the landfill! This Friday, December 9, BLUElab Metro’s team will collect your used electronics and repurpose them or recycle them for you. BLUElab Metro is a project team initiated by students in U-M’s College of Engineering; one of several BLUElab project teams dedicated to promoting design processes that implement socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable technology.

Learn about all of BLUElab Metro’s projects including Friday’s Electronics Dropoff in partnership 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 collected will be repaired and refurbished for this purpose, while any remaining or unusable parts will be recycled along with the dead batteries.
