We Recycle

The Oberlin Technology Store can recycle used alkaline and lithium batteries from your electronic devices (laptop, cell phone, camera, etc, no car batteries) and empty ink cartridges (no laser toner cartridges). Bring these items to Mudd Level A, and we'll recycle them in an environmentally sound manner.

We also now take old computers and other electronic equipment. You must wipe your own hard drive of all personal data before bringing it to the Tech Store or the Help Desk, Level A Mudd.

If you don't see a product at our Store, we may be able to order it for you and save you money!
