SEED: Accepted Equipment List & Disposal Guide
Not sure if your electronic equipment can be placed in a dumpster or if it should go through SEED? What do you do if you need help with equipment that may contain hazardous materials? Use the Decision Guide to determine if you should use SEED to dispose of your surplus electronic equipment.
Accepted Equipment List
The Accepted Equipment List, provided by the UNH contracted recycling vendor, shows electronic equipment that can be disposed via the SEED program. If you have checked the list and still have questions as to whether a particular piece of equipment qualifies for the SEED program, contact IT Computer Repair Services thru the IT Service Desk at 862-4242 or the website at: https://td.unh.edu/TDClient/Requests/ServiceDet?ID=165 . Use the USNH Surplus website for disposal of non-electronic equipment such as furniture or vehicles.
SEED cannot accept electronic equipment which contains non-removeable liquids, refrigerants, or hazardous or radioactive materials.
- If your equipment contains liquids or refrigerant, contact UNH Facilities for assistance with disposal
- If the equipment contains hazardous or radioactive naterials, contact UNH OEHS.
- SEED cannot accept loose lead-acid batteries for UPS or other devices; contact UNH OEHS for disposal at 603-862-4041 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Lead-acid batteries are accepted when installed in the device.
Heavy and Large Equipment
If you have an item of electronic equipment for disposal which you cannot move or transport safely because of its size and/or weight, you can contact UNH Facilities for assistance. Equipment for Facilities pickup must be registered with, and accepted by, the SEED program prior to arranging for pickup. Facilities does charge a fee for the pickup service which is the responsibility of the equipment owner/requester.
To arrange a SEED pickup, call Facilities Dispatch at 603-862-1437.
When bringing printers to a SEED collection, please check if any of your printers is leaking ink, an example of which is shown in the photo.
If a printer is leaking ink, it must be packaged in a plastic bag, such as a kitchen trash bag or contractor's bag, to ensure personnel or equipment handling the items are not stained or damaged by ink (the vehicle you transport the equipment in may also be damaged!). UNH IT is not able to provide bags at the collection.
