Electronic Waste Pick-Up Instructions
Before you submit a form, please review the list of accepted and non-accepted materials.
If you missed your scheduled time frame, you will need to reschedule your e-waste pick-up and submit another request form. Buildings with loading docks are expected to bring all of their electronic waste to the loading dock. Buildings without loading dock must bring their electronic waste to the curb. For curb-side pick-ups, human-I-T will call you at the number entered on the form to meet you at the designated pick-up location to prevent equipment from being left out unsupervised. Please click on the map linked below to find the nearest accepted pick-up location.
Please note in the comments if your equipment is too large and you are unable to bring equipment to the designated pick-up location.
Human-I-T comes to campus every Tuesday.
To ensure that your request is processed, the deadline is on Friday at 12pm of the week you submit your request for the following week’s pick-up. After your form has been submitted, a Facilities Management representative will contact you on Friday to confirm your pick-up time and location.
While human-I-T will provide NIST800-88 data destruction which is HIPAA and Dept. of Defense compliant, it is recommended to clear all sensitive data prior to pick-up.
The most common non-accepted item is household appliances, which include lamps, microwaves, refrigerators, and freezers.
Freezers, refrigerators, and other units containing Freon: due to recent changes, our vendor can no longer process units containing Freon. The Freon must be removed prior to disposal and must be completed by Facilities Management. Please submit an FSR requesting ‘Freon Removal’. Once you have a Work Order #, submit a bulky item Removal Form below and attach the Work Order # to the unit for removal. There will be no additional cost for removal of the actual unit.
Household batteries are not accepted. You can request a battery bucket in the form.
Printer ink toners/cartridges are collected separately or you can send the empty ink back to the manufacturers if there is a take-back program.
Light bulbs are not considered e-waste — please submit an FSR for proper light bulb disposal.
Bulky Item/Furniture Pick-Up
Do you have bulky items, such as household appliances or furniture, that need to be removed?
Submit a request form below and Facilities will contact you to schedule your pick-up. Items in good condition will be donated to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles. When scheduling your pick-up, please leave a note on the items acceptable for donation. Please review the two links below for a guideline to donating goods.
Please note that recyclables such as large stacks of paper, books, or magazines do not constitute as a bulky item pick-up and will require an FSR.
If you are unsure what to do, please email us photos of your items or ask for help through our email at ZeroWaste@ucla.edu.
