    School ICT equipment displosal policy

    Has anybody got a policy that complies with the current laws on the ethical displosal of old kit. We obvioiously try and recycle as much as possible internally and then externally but don't have that writern down.

    Just stick all unwanted equipment in a room, leave door open over lunch time, then when you come back all has disposed of itself.

    Don't think this method will work if your school has respectable students, but in our school I am sure a rule in the school hand book says...

    If it ain't nailed down, a sixth former will pinch it.

    Strip out the copper. It is worth £1400 a tonne. I have just got £5 for a couple of taps and 10' of 15mm pipe! (And £40 for lead pipe which made the trip worthwhile!)

    Ebay is your friend for some things.

    We ebayed about 200 or some silly number of SATA leads, a tonne of IDE leads and also a joblot of IEC power leads ("kettle leads").

    We also had some spare stuff like camera batteries etc that we were never going to use.

    ITWombat, i'd suggest e-bay...someone'll want them!

    We /did/ have one of the old RM System base servers that ran NT4 along with an old RM proxy server running NT4 also, and if i remember correctly the old RM CC2.5 server.

    The LEA came and took them away for us

    The site manager would have been on our case if we'd stuck 25 RM CRTs in the skips/bins about the site!

    I think someone came to recycle those.

    Find all the geeks out and ask them if they want some 15" CRTs to use alongside their 19" TFT LCD quad-head graphics rig at home.


    It might work *dreams* LOL
