The Computer User Areas of the University have participated in the HP Planet Partner Program since 2006. The concept of recycling HP consumables was approved by the Purchasing division in 2008. Four of the computer labs and the Purchasing division are currently collection points for HP recyclable materials. Although a department or unit can register and manage its own recycling and collection schedule it is advised to make use of the current facilities. All departments and units are invited to support this effort. HP supplies collection bins and our current supplier removes these bins on request or when delivering new supplies.
Current collection points:
- FHARGA: Third floor, Statistics and Accountancy Building
- GERGA: Third floor, Teaching Block, Tygerberg Campus
- HUMARGA: Third floor, Arts and Social Sciences Building
- NARGA: Second floor, north entrance, Administration Block A.
