Paper Abstract

In this paper we address the operational and economical aspects of EOL computer systems at educational institutions. To this end we present an actual case study of a major university in Boston and provide an economical analysis of different options such as disposal, disassembly, recycling, reuse and re-sale of these systems. We recommend a new procedure that will improve the collection and handling processes leading to a structured decision making methodology.
