IT Equipment Recovery Program

University IT and the UR Tech Store offer easy, secure recycling for personal and University-owned consumer electronics. Hard drives in recycled equipment will be destroyed at a secure University location, and serial number tracking on hard drives will give you peace of mind.

New York State law now requires recycling of virtually all electronics, as of January 1, 2015. Fines for improper disposal start at $100/incident.
