Disposal of surplus University property is governed by State law. Some legal points to remember: Dismantling equipment to salvage parts is permissible if approved by Business Services Property Management. All University-owned software and data must be permanently deleted from surplus computers before disposal.
Surplus Property Definition:
Equipment/property no longer needed by the University. This includes property that has a remaining useful life, obsolete property, scrap materials, property that has completed its useful life cycle, and damaged property.
