It's Spring again, and once more it's time to clean out those closets and get rid of that sensitive electronic clutter. To help you toward that goal, we are pleased to announce that the LSA IT sponsored Hard Drive Destruction Day will be Friday, May 19th, 2017.

Starting today you can deliver hard drives and magnetic backup tapes to LSA IT for secure, certified destruction by an outside vendor (Great Lakes Electronics Corporation). To expedite the process, we ask you to please adhere to the following:

  • Hard drives (and tapes) should be delivered to the LSA IT Service Desk in sealed boxes.
  • Boxes should be clearly labeled with the number of items, and your contact information.
  • Boxes should not weigh more than 40 lbs.

Hard drives will be held by us in a locked storage area while awaiting pickup. The vendor will provide us with a certificate of destruction once the job is completed.

Please gather and deliver your drives to any of the LSA IT Service Desk walk-in locations (G220 Angell Hall, 2428 Randall Lab, 1069 East Hall, or A541 Chemistry Building). Drives will be accepted now through Thursday May 18th, and the vendor pickup will occur at 10:00am on Friday, May 19th. This program is being paid for by LSA IT, and should be used to dispose of LSA property only.

Please contact the LSA IT Service Desk if you have any questions.
