Recycling

 

Information Technology, in conjunction with the Purchasing Department, has taken steps to ensure that Loyola University New Orleans disposes of it’s old and broken computer equipment in a manner that is safe for the environment and Loyola. 

When a department has equipment that is no longer needed, they are asked to send it to our purchasing department. This process is easily initiated by filling out a form for proper disposal of the equipment. The equipment will be picked up and stored.

Information Technology will clean the hard drive of all data and decide if it can be reused on campus. If it cannot be reused, it is then marked for recycling. Information Technology works with outside vendors who pick up the old computer equipment. These vendors recycle the equipment by reselling, shredding, and melting down the parts.
