UNB recycles 50,000 pounds of e-waste in three years

The University of New Brunswick says it has recycled more than 50,000 pounds of electronic waste over the past three years.

It's one of the highlights of the second annual UNB Green Review report, published by UNB Sustainability.

Coordinator Danielle Smith says UNB has made significant sustainability progress in recent years, which include installing free food planters, and conducting building and waste audits.

The latest Green Review also includes the university's Saint John campus, which has successfully converted 30 per cent of its lights to LED.

The campus is also home to the Hans W. Klohn Commons building – one of the most energy-efficient buildings in the province.

UNB is in the process of developing one of the region's first university climate change action plans, which is expected to be ready by 2019.
