Disposal of Computer (and other electrical) Equipment

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive)

There is now a legal requirement to recycle all of its unwanted (and broken) electrical items (no matter how small).

The instructions in the Estates “How to Recycle Electrical Equipment” web page should be followed with properly documented material stored in the relevant area of the outside waste store to await uplift.
Computers should be offered (in the first instance) to the School’s I.T. Support staff to check if any re-usable parts can be salvaged. We also normally remove and destroy hard disks rather than trying to wipe the data.
