Computer Disposals


Computer Disposals and Destruction of Hard Drives

The security of the data on the hard drive of a computer is our first priority in Support Services in the computer disposal process. Please follow these short steps:

  1. Submit the completed and signed work order and send to property1@etal.uri.edu.
  2. The computer will be picked up, brought to Central Receiving, and locked up.
  3. The hard drive will be removed, logged in and secured in a safe.
  4. The vendor is contacted and a date is set for the hard drives to be shredded.  A Support Services staff member transports them to the State's recycling vendor and observes the shredding of these drives. The vendor has a video camera on during the process.
  5. If there are any questions about this process, or a department requires special handling, please contact the Assistant Director of Support Services at 4-2760 for further information.
