The Students Recycling Used Technology (StRUT) program has been overhauling the recycling process and has found additional recycling revenue generating commodities in the last 3 months. These include lead acid batteries, power supply cases, computer cable data connectors, printer / toner cartridges, cell phones, and computer cooling fans. Each of these is either a new recyclable component, or has been separated out from a previous recyclable commodity in order to generate more revenue and increase the efficiency for the recycler to process for reuse.
StRUT has found additional recycling commodities in the last 3 months, ultimately reducing landfill waste. These are rechargeable batteries, alkaline batteries, and plastic shrink wrap. We’ve sent in over 150 pounds of rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries for responsible recycling in the last 2 months alone. StRUT is partnering with a local brewery to add our plastic shrink wrap waste to their recycling efforts.
