Reading Time: < 1 minutes

In support of the University’s commitment to a zero carbon future, IT Services are holding an IT Kit Amnesty week taking place from Monday 15 April to Friday 19 April.

Drop-off points for the equipment will be available at various locations across the campus, including:

What we can’t accept

  • We can’t take devices that are badly broken, but cracks and chips are okay.

Also, if you’re handing over an Apple device please make sure you’ve logged out. Apple devices have an extra security feature so they need to be logged out so that where possible we can wipe & re-use them.

Did you know that owning and using electronic devices is a key contributor to everyone’s carbon footprint? Recycling your old kit with us is just one way we can do all our bit to achieve our sustainability commitments. Learn more about environmental sustainability on campus.

Please note: IT Services guarantees the secure handling of all donated equipment. Any data on the devices will be wiped securely and confidentially, ensuring no data extraction or access.
