Disposal of Computers

In ITS’ computer replacement cycle scheme, ITS-owned computers that are more than four years old and are not “candidates for re-use” on campus, are donated to non-profit institutions in Claremont and Pomona. In the event, units are too old even for donation, ITS employs an environmental company for the proper and safe disposal of these units.

Office computers that are replaced in the course of the regular replacement cycles are not sold to faculty, academic staff or administrative staff for use in off-campus locations per a policy of Human Resources. In any event, the terms of the College’s software licenses preclude selling computers with software to private individuals; the cost of removing software from individual computers and offering them for sale (or even to give them away) is prohibitive.
