CFL bulbs


When CFL bulbs are recycled, the glass is salvaged while the mercury content is safely disposed.  Visit RecycFluo to find the off-campus drop-off site nearest to you.

Incandescent bulbs


These bulbs cannot be recycled. Safely dispose of them in the trash by wrapping them in a protective material such as several layers of newspaper.

Desktops, monitors, laptops and other large e-waste


Concordia Offices: Contact the IITS service desk at x7613 or to submit a request to discard equipment. Usable items will be wiped and reused internally or donated. Unusable items will be sent out for certified e-waste recycling.


Community: Concordia organizes collection events each Fall and Spring for large e-waste. Stay tuned for a regular schedule to be posted. Look up your nearest Eco-Centre for a convenient location to recycle large e-waste.
