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.
from Seth Rogers, Ofc for Information Technology
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
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.
