Electronic Asset Reuse and Disposal

The University has become increasingly aware of the issues caused by disposal of electronic Waste (E-waste) worldwide and consequently has decided to address the disposal of unwanted electronic equipment in a consistent, environmentally conscious manner.

Data Erasure & Evidence of Destruction

During the disposal process, all data will be erased from hardware and the equipment will then be recycled by the University's approved providers. These providers have been assessed for their ability to manage the University's compliance with information management and information security requirements.

The faculty will not sell or donate computers direct to staff.

Electronic asset and E-waste disposal remains sole responsibility of the University of Melbourne Campus Assist team.
