Computers

Before disposing of a computer:
  • All licensed, personal, sensitive, or University software must be removed by the owner department before being disposed.
  • The Microsoft Windows or Macintosh operating systems can remain, as can obsolete software. Please do not destroy the hard disk.

NOTE: DEPARTMENTS ARE THE PRIMARY ORGANIZATION RESPONSIBLE FOR WIPING HARD DRIVES.

MONITOR DISPOSAL IS NOW FREE! Monitors should still be sent to Excess & Surplus for proper disposal. Monitors that are visibly cracked/broken and/or showing tubes are considered Hazardous Material. Departments are required to call the Office of Environment, Health & Safety at 642-3073 or disposal as Excess & Surplus will not take them.
