What to do with stray ground wires?

I am hard-wiring a plug-in computer fan that has no ground. I am removing the plug and direct connecting the wires to the power so the fan can be controlled by a switch. My incoming romex cable of course has a ground. Do I just forget about the ground in this situation and roll it up in the corner of the plastic gang box?

Thanks in advance.

I would terminate the ground on the green ground screw on the switch.
