Proper way to dispose an old system

#1

Post by garbajohn »

When I computer is replaced in a branch, do the branch President have any authority on how to dispose it?. Perhaps, what's the proper way to dispose an old system.

The stake technology specialist or district technology specialist is responsible for maintaining stake/district computers. He should work with FM to recycle old computers as described in the Computer Overview article in the Meetinghouse Technology/Computer/ section of the Help Center.

Note that the computers belong to the stake, not to the ward or branch they're assigned to.

The FM group will give the technology specialist instructions on how to ship the old computer to a recycling center.

When I replaced our ward computer earlier this year, I communicated with the FM Group. They asked if I needed a box and packing material. Since I already had both, they asked me to provide the weight and dimensions of the old computer to be returned. They used that information to generate a shipping label.

I had to perform a secure wipe of the hard drive, and pack only the computer, with no peripheral devices or cables. I attached the shipping label to my box and dropped it off at a shipping drop point.
