are the only campus departments authorized to
dispose of or recycle equipment. Please see the
Equipment Disposal Procedures for information on
having equipment moved/removed from your department.
- Support Services will begin removing all
non-technology related equipment from University
departments via a written work order.
- Support Services will determine if an item can
be used on campus, declared surplus, or sent for
recycling. No items will be moved without a
- If an item is sent to Electronic Recycling,
Support Services will provide an EPD for the items.
The receiver in Recycling will sign the EPD, and a
copy, in addition to the inventory tags, will be
sent to Inventory Control.
- Support Services will continue to provide
Inventory Control with copies of completed work
orders. When the items are removed from the
departments, they will be moved to Support Services’
inventory via the work order. When the items
are sent to recycling storage, they will be moved to
the Electronic Recycling Inventory, 1-52299, via the
- Information Technology will remove all
technology related equipment from University
departments via a written work order or IT service
- Information Technology will determine if an item
can be used on campus, declared surplus, or sent for
- IT will scan and pull inventory tags from all
items sent for recycling. IT will record the
serial number of any item missing an SU inventory
- IT will either deliver, or Horticulture will
pick up the equipment.
- Inventory Control will upload the recycling scan
and provide a copy to both IT and Horticulture.
A copy of this listing will be put with the
pallet/pallets for reference, and all equipment will
be palletized by the date the equipment was sent to
- IT will return all tags to Inventory Control.
- The scanned equipment will be moved to the
Electronic Recycling inventory, and finally deleted
when the items are shipped to the recycler.
- The department will continue to monitor the
recycling drop box placed at the Maintenance
Building. Any items retrieved from the box
tagged as SU property will be moved to the recycling
storage facility. The department will contact
Inventory Control with relevant information so that
the owning department can be notified of the correct
recycling procedures. Horticulture will send
the tag to Inventory Control.
- Any non-SU items removed from the drop box will
be placed on a pallet solely for non-SU items.
Horticulture will record the serial or other
identifying number of any items suspected of
belonging to SU.
- Horticulture/Recycling will no longer pick up
electronic recycling from individual University
departments, with the exception of Information
Technology, to be discussed below. All
requests for the removal of equipment will be
forwarded to Support Services.
- Horticulture will continue to palletize and
store recycling until it is removed from University
property. Equipment sent for recycling will be
moved to the Electronic Recycling inventory until it
is shipped for recycling, at which time it will be
deleted from University inventory records.
- Inventory Control will be notified of any SU
equipment inventory discovered in dumpsters.
Inventory Control will attempt to identify and
contact the department of origin, with the
expectation that the department will retrieve the
items and follow proper disposal procedures.
In the event that time or circumstances prevent
this, Horticulture will move the items to electronic
recycling storage, and Inventory Control will work
with the owning department to properly document the
disposal. The equipment will remain on the
owning department’s inventory until proper paperwork
is received and it can be moved to the Electronic
- When a shipment is sent to the recycler,
Horticulture will provide Inventory Control a copy
of the signed receipt of shipment from the carrier.
