We have a computer that cannot be upgraded to Windows 10. What should we do with it?
The basic guidelines for discarding equipment that is no longer working is as follows:
To dispose of old computers, monitors, or printers, contact your facilities manager. The facilities manager should remove the old equipment for you. The facilities manager uses the website http://churchpcsurplus.com to properly dispose of church-owned equipment. If facilities management is unable to assist in the disposal of old equipment, submit a request for equipment pick-up from the churchpcsurplus.com site.
Do not return old computers, monitors, or printers to Church Headquarters. Remove them from the center.
Before you dispose of old computers, scrub the hard drive using the free utility, DBAN.
Do not load a Windows operating system on the computers nor remove any product key sticker for the operating system.
