    Re: School ICT equipment displosal policy

    If you give old IT equipment to staff or pupils, no mater what you say or give them in writing, you and your school are liable for any problems arising from this equipment. ie electrocution, fire etc. If you sell the equipment you are responsible for the end of life and weee regulations as well as any faults. It is much safer to either sell the items to an IT trader / asset recover company or donate it to charity / waste managment group.

    You also find most equipment for schools must be used till it is of no further use. If it has a value for resale then it should have a value of use for your students.

    re. power cables - you could try the organisations which re-use equipment in developing countries - I remember that Computer Aid International recently appealed for power cables (and keyboards and mice), as loads of people donate PCs but not the bits that go with them.

    It is a shame that manufacturers still include all these cables, though - printers don't come with USB cables as the manufacturers assume that we have one by now, but still they come will power leads?
