Secure E-Waste and Paper Disposal
The purpose of this Practice Directive is to outline and define SF State's campus-wide Secure E-waste and Paper Disposal Program that is designed to protect the security of campus information assets.
SF State's campus-wide Secure E-waste and Paper Disposal Program is designed to protect the security of campus information assets and to save money. The policies below are effective immediately:
- All e-waste (electronic media, computers, monitors, PDAs, phones, etc.) must be disposed of according to the campus procedures outlined below.
- A Property Survey Request Form must be completed, regardless of the original purchase price or salvage value of the device, for any e-waste device capable of storing information after its power has been removed.
- All paper containing sensitive information must be discarded in secure disposal bins. Personal office shredders are not recommended because shredded paper does not get recycled.
Secure E-Waste Destruction, Recycling, and Resale
Sustainable SF State now owns the Secure E-Waste Program. Please visit E-waste Q & A for complete details of the new program.
SF State has a campus-wide contract with Citywide Fibers for secure paper disposal. All paper containing sensitive information must be discarded in the locked blue bins provided by Citywide Fibers and the bins must be placed in a staffed office or otherwise secured. The Citywide service should be used instead of personal office shredders wherever possible, as waste from personal shredders is not recycled.
