How to dispose of an old computer, printer or electrical equipment

Office equipment

Before you dispose of old computers it is advised that you back-up your files and use a data removal tool to securely wipe the data from your hard drive.

If you need to dispose of UCD IT equipment, please contact UCD Estate Services.

Home equipment

If you are purchasing equipment for your home and if it is delivered to your residence, the supplier must remove and safely recycle it. Otherwise bring your equipment to a Dublin City Council recycle centre.
