What Can’t I Drop Off?
Do not bring household items like TVs, VCRs, microwaves, etc.
What About Other E-Waste?
For college-owned equipment, contact the OIT helpdesk for information about proper disposal. For more info about cell phones, college-owned thermostats, and more, visit the Recycling Guide.
Why Recycle This Stuff?
Do not put any computer equipment in the trash. Computer have all sorts of toxins that are hazardous if disposed of incorrectly. Additionally, computers will have their hard drives 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 not inexpensive. OIT offers this as a free service to students and employees.
