Shared Storage Space

To free Office space, a central controlled storage space is available to store and share items that are in working condition (e.g. screen, keyboard, PCs) but that aren't used at a given moment in time.

If you need to access the storage (to store or borrow material), please contact the DSM.

How do I dispose of my furniture?

Keep them in your office. Do not dispose of unwanted furniture in the corridors.

If it is in working condition, you can offer it in the IT Off-Topic Mattermost channel, to be collected from your office.

Alternatively, you can also ship it to B133 for recycling and reuse by filling a EDH SIT form (one SIT per location):

  • Nature: Furniture Transport
  • From: the location where all the items are (groups the items together)
  • To: 133 Storage Hall Meyrin
  • Recipient: Jean-Francois Ecarnot
  • Add one Item entry per type of item
  • As comment indicate if the item is in working condition or not, or if the computer disk needs to be cleaned
  • The dimensions are approximative
  • The Total Amount for this purpose is 1 CHF
  • Consider adding a photo of the items to be collected

Once your SIT document submitted, print the request and tape it on the items.
