Computer Disposal

If you have a broken computer that needs disposal it is important to remember that there are a considerable amount of hazardous materials used to build the machine. It is best not to just dump the computer in the trash but to let the proper parties take care of the disposal. In addition, you should discuss with IT Service Desk personnel regarding removing all data from the computer before the computer is disposed of. 

Materials Management

Once the computer has all data removed, Dartmouth has a department that will dispose of this for you. First you will need to collect some information before Materials Management can pick up the computer. The company that disposes of the computers will also destroy the hard drives, to avoid any possibility of your information becoming compromised.
