Equipment Retirement

The BCS-IT group can assist in retiring old computer equipment. We can come up and remove computer equipment from your laboratory or office space. We can also fill out the proper paper work for the transfer of the retired equipment to surplus. As always you can e-mail or call us if you have any questions.

  • The BCS-IT group provides an option to wipe all content of hard drives given to us. If the hard drive cannot be erased through software or if technology is too old for us to properly wipe the drive, then we personally bring the drive to a facility for its physical destruction.
  • If we assisted in upgrading your equipment (i.e. Computer) we provide an option to hold your old computer for approximately 60 days in the condition it was removed. If files or content were not properly transfer to your new machine, we can bring back your old computer to search for such missing content.
  • Please Note: We ask if such equipment was in contact with radioactive or bio-hazardous materials please let us know before we handle the equipment. We want to take every precaution to make sure we are safe in retiring your old system.
