Computer Disposal

Arts ISIT can help you dispose of your electronics. Whether you are thinking about recycling or donating them, we are here to help.

Safely dispose of electronic equipment

Computer and electronic equipment should be ethically discarded to prevent environmental contamination and landfill hazards. They should not be thrown away with your regular garbage.

To help you safely dispose of your electronics, Arts ISIT offers a recycling service for your equipment and hosts a year-round cellphone and battery disposal station in Buchanan C113.

Donating computers and electronic equipment

Arts ISIT can evaluate old hardware to see if it can be redistributed to other staff and faculty members. If your equipment is still functional and not too old, bring it to the Help Desk, and we can take care of the rest. We appreciate all donations.
