E-device Collection Campaign

The university-wide E-device Collection Campaign held from 27 to 30 January was a success. A collaboration between CUHK Business School and AIA, this meaningful initiative promoted awareness of e-waste recycling and green living among the staff, students and alumni of the University. As a charitable activity, the campaign entailed donating e-devices to Caritas Computer Workshop, a non-profit organization that erases old data and adds new software to such devices before giving them to people who need them most.

Four strategic collection points were set up—Cheng Yu Tung Building, Benjamin Franklin Centre, and Yasumoto International Academic Park on campus, and the MBA Town Centre in Central. In total, 455 recyclable e-devices were collected. The top three most donated items were laptops (102), mobile phones (62), and desktops (46).
