PLEASE do not put your computer equipment in the trash. For one, it’s not green. Two, it’s not safe – someone could grab your computer, boot it up and read all your files. Even if your computer is broken or doesn’t boot someone could still take the drive out and easily retrieve the data.
Typically we receive equipment for several days during early summer. The exact schedule will be posted.
Computers will have their hard drives removed and destroyed to eliminate the possibility of data theft. Equipment which can be reused will be refurbished by OIT and donated to local schools and non-profit organizations. The rest will be removed by a recycling firm.
A Williams I.D. is required to drop off equipment.
The purpose of this project is to accept personal computing equipment, we do not have the capacity to handle items from businesses. Recycling computer equipment is a great idea. It’s also not free. Williams must pay for the removal of this equipment.
Printers, monitors and computer peripherals are accepted. Do not bring household items like TVs, VCRs, Microwaves, etc.
Where is the “Agway barn”? At the end of Spring street stay to the right, go past Dennison gate house and turn left into the shed area.
