Be Green Not Blue - OIT recycling program starts May 30

OIT will be accepting old computer equipment at the Facilities barn on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday May 30, 31 and June 1. Hours are from 12:30 to 2:30. This is your chance to discard your computer in a safe and responsible way to avoid data loss and ensure the equipment is recycled or reused.

Please do not put your computer equipment in the trash OR in the college donation pods. It’s not environmentally responsible and it’s not safe – someone could grab your computer, boot it up and read all your files. Even if your computer is broken someone could easily take the drive out and retrieve sensitive information. Computers we receive will have their harddrives 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.

We do not have the capacity to handle items from businesses. What can you drop off? Printers, monitors and computer peripherals like scanners and external drives are accepted. DO NOT BRING APPLIANCES like TVs, VCRs, Microwaves, etc. If it wasn’t hooked to a computer please don’t bring it.

Where is the Facilities barn? It’s the new structure behind the tennis courts. To get to it, head down Southworth street and turn left onto Lynde Lane. Turn right onto Stetson road. The barn is on the right.
