How should I dispose of old computer equipment?

Contact help@nmr.mgh.harvard.edu with a description, model, S/N and MGH inventory tag (if present).

If the equipment has an MGH inventory tag you must contact RSMG@partners.org(phone number 617-643-2197) to have it removed from their capital equipment inventory database.

After contacting us with that information, if you are getting rid of computers with hard drives that you would like scrubbed, you can contact Partners I.S. to arrange for a pickup. More info here.

If you are throwing away monitors, printers or any computers with hard drives that don’t require data scrubbing, you can contact Environmental Services at 6-5490 to have them picked up. Keyboards and mice can be disposed of in the regular trash.
