This is one of my roommate's mini refrigerator that has been sitting on our porch since it stopped working in October. We called Buildings and Grounds to pick it up a few times, but they have yet to. Before my roommate figured this fridge didn't work, it was plugged in for a few months, wasting electricity. This made me think- what does Buildings and Grounds do with this broken fridge that no longer works? Do they throw it out with all the other trash? Will they try to fix it? If they dispose of it properly, how far does this piece of e-waste have to travel?
