What is GreenND? Click here to view the GreenND brochure.

GreenND is an electronic waste (e-waste) recycling program administered by Surplus Property. The North Dakota government entities that are eligible to utilize this program are state agencies, political subdivisions and public schools, colleges and universities. Eligible government entities are encouraged to utilize this program to recycle their e-waste in a safe, responsible and cost effective manner.

How does GreenND work?

Surplus Property collects, palletizes and stores unsalable e-waste at our warehouse in Bismarck. When we have accumulated enough unsalable e-waste to fill a 53-foot semi-trailer, it is picked up by our contracted recycler. The e-waste is then brought to a certified recycling center that follows a strict no-landfill policy.

Eligible entities must call and schedule an appointment to drop off their e-waste. They will be billed accordingly based on the GreenND fee schedule.

When can e-waste be dropped off?

Eligible entities who wish to schedule an appointment to drop off their e-waste should call Surplus Property at 701-328-9665.

E-waste drop off times are limited to Mondays and Tuesdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM by appointment only. Additional charges may be assessed to entities that drop their e-waste off outside of normal drop off times.

How should e-waste be packaged?

Large quantities of e-waste should be organized by grouping like items together and placing them on a pallet. The items on the pallet should be secured using shrink wrap to ensure safe transfer of the property from the location of the disposing entity to Surplus Property.

For guidance on the proper way to palletize e-waste, please visit http://www.unicor.gov/RecyclingPackaging.aspx.

Eligible entities may also contact Surplus Property at 701-328-9665 if they have questions about organizing and palletizing e-waste prior to it being dropped off at Surplus Property.

How is my information secured?

Computer hard drives must be wiped prior to being sent to Surplus Property so that they can be reutilized by schools and other eligible organizations. Surplus Property is no responsible for wiping or destroying the hard drives of property they receive.

Unsalable electronics containing hard drives will be sent to the certified recycling center where they will be cleaned in accordance with the Department of Defense (DoD) high-level security wiping procedures.

E-waste Fee Schedule

On July 1st, 2009, Surplus Property was granted the authority to charge agencies for the recycling and disposal of unsalable surplus property.

"The office of management and budget may establish a program for the recycling and disposal of surplus property determined unsalable and may assess and collect service charges from the department, agency, institution, or political subdivision from which the property was received to cover direct and reasonable costs of this service." -Section 54-44-04.6

Eligible government entities are strongly encouraged to dispose of their electronics while they are in serviceable and desirable condition. Computers that are capable of running Windows XP or newer Microsoft software are frequently purchased by schools, colleges and universities.*Please include restore discs, software, hard drives, power supplies and memory with your surplus computers so that eligibile entities can quickly and economically put the computers into use.

All copiers and multi-function devices with digital storage capability are designated as e-waste by Surplus Property because we are unable to verify that all potentially sensitive documents have been wiped from the hard drives.
