Reuse and Disposal

Opportunities to reuse computer equipment, rather than dispose of it, will be maximized.

When planning to replace a computer, the new location of the existing computer whether another office or State of Nebraska surplus, will be identified on the Computer Purchase Request form. Upon delivery of the new equipment, the Department of Information Technology will assist with relocating the existing equipment and facilitate the CSC inventory update.

Working computer equipment that cannot be used by CSC will be removed from the CSC inventory and submitted to State of Nebraska surplus. If the equipment is of an age unacceptable to State surplus, Information Technology will turn the equipment over for disposal.

 

Disposal


CSC can generate no more than 220 pounds of total hazardous waste in any given calendar month.

Color computer monitors contain lead and are considered hazardous waste.

Approximate weight of assembled computer monitors follows.

(Actual weights vary by age of equipment and manufacturer.)

14"   15-25 lbs
15"   20-30 lbs
17"   40-50 lbs
19"   60-75 lbs
21"   80-90 lbs

Old computers will be phased out over time, to avoid excess disposal in any one month.

The accumulation of unused computer equipment in storage areas is discouraged as doing so will likely result in a large amount of equipment to dispose of, changing CSC's hazardous waste status.

Stored computer equipment should be reported to the Department of Information Technology, who will assist with placement in another office, surplus, or disposal.
