The UNH IT Safe Electronic Equipment Disposal (SEED) program provides for the disposal of surplus equipment containing data storage, including computers and mobile devices, as well as equipment containing circuit boards such as monitors, printers, peripherals, scientific equipment and audio-visual equipment. This program differs from the USNH Surplus Property program in several important ways:
We review requests for disposal of electronic equipment and contact you via email with approval of the request and confirmation of the drop off date for the approved equipment.
· UNH IT is your primary contact for this service.
For detailed information, or to follow up on your request, contact IT Computer Repair Services thru the IT Service Desk at 862-4242 or the website at: https://itsupport.unh.edu/
· Equipment collections are scheduled regularly at the loading dock at One Leavitt Lane, Durham.
Please bring only approved items to the scheduled collection; we verify the list of approved equipment against the equipment that you bring. This ensures that sufficient space is reserved on the collection truck for your equipment and allows us to confirm that the service provider wiped the equipment.
· Requests to Donate, Transfer or Sell surplus electronic equipment are not available through SEED.
All items submitted to this new program will be processed by our service provider; see also the UNH IT Policy on Protecting Information During Equipment Transfer Or Disposal.
Note: USNH Surplus Property will continue to handle all requests for non-electronic equipment to donate, transfer, sell or scrap items such as furniture or vehicles.
· Equipment accepted for disposal in this program is listed here.
Our service provider cannot accept items containing liquids, refrigerants, hazardous or radioactive materials and batteries (except for those used in laptops or installed in UPS devices). When disposing of items containing any of these materials, please contact the UNH Office of Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) or UNH Facilities for guidance on proper disposal.
