Computer recycle and reuse project starts Friday For 5 days in May and June OIT will be accepting old computer equipment at the college Agway barn. The dates are May 17, 20, 21, then May 31 and June 3. Hours are from 12:30 to 2:30. A Williams ID is required to drop off equipment. We can only accept personal computing equipment, not items from businesses. MORE: http://web.williams.edu/messages/show.php?id=24630 from Seth Rogers, Ofc for Information Technology
Message details:
Please do not put your computer equipment in the trash OR in the 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 or doesn't start someone could easily take the drive out and retrieve the data. 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. 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 like scanners and external drives are accepted. DO NOT BRING APPLIANCES like TVs, VCRs, Microwaves, etc. If it wasn't hooked to a computer we can't accept it. 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. Questions? Email srogers@williams.edu Seth -- Director of Desktop Systems Office for Information Technology
