Policy for the Disposal of City Technology Assets

At Council this month I was successful in getting the City to adopt a new policy for the disposal of the city’s technology assets. In short, all RFPs will now required successful bidders for disposing of the waste to track the assets and components of the assets and be able to prove to the city that the assets and components of the assets have been disposed of “in accordance with government environmental regulations and other governing health and safety regulations such as the Basel Convention.” In short, these motions mean the City of Toronto is now a leader in the responsible disposal of its technology assets.
