the ongoing effort to preserve our environment, the Surplus Exchange
operates an electronics recycling operation in the lowest level of the
building. This department disassembles non-working electronic items for
circuit boards, and other recyclables are sold in the appropriate markets
to divert them from the waste stream and provide some revenues to
supplement the Exchange’s daily operations.
televisions, photo copiers and other items deemed environmentally
hazardous are processed through companies that specialize in hazardous
electronics deconstruction. The Surplus Exchange collects a nominal
processing fee for these items.
