Staff & Faculty Recycling
Before computers with a Tufts ID tag number can be picked up by Facilities for recycling, a “change of status” needs to be reported to the Tufts Finance Division. Please report this change of status by emailing the tag numbers to firstname.lastname@example.org. The email subject line should read “Change of Status”. Most computers at Tufts no longer have tags on them. In this case, you do not need to report a change of status.
It is recommended that Tufts information is cleaned from hardware before recycling or reuse. Please contact your Frontline Service Provider for more information. Another resource is Active@ Kill Disk Hard Driver Eraser.
Most Tufts computers are recycled for free. However, charges may be applied to large scale clean-outs. To schedule a recycling pick up, please fill in a “no fee” service request on the Facilities website: http://operations.tufts.edu/facilities/
Tufts old computers are either reused internally or recycled domestically by Allied Computer Brokers. No computer equipment from Tufts is sent overseas.
