Consider your carbon footprint when it comes to IT Recycling
While IT recycling has its benefits within the circular economy, reuse is ultimately a more sustainable option. Here are a few reasons why your business should consider reusing electronic equipment instead.
Reuse allows for zero-carbon emissions
The reuse process is the most environmentally friendly solution when determining what to do with used kit. This is because the procedure transmits few to none pollutive emissions.
Although recycling enables valuable components such as copper and gold to be rebuilt into new products, small amounts of CO2 are released into the atmosphere.
By opting for reuse, your business will be reducing its carbon footprint and making a positive impact on our environment.
Any item in good condition can be reused
Throwing away useable equipment in favour of purchasing a new fleet is not environmentally sustainable. Keeping high quality does not necessarily mean buying new.
Refurbished IT assets can be redeployed within your business. This means tech can be reused between employees, saving costs and reducing environmental impact.
Bring the life back into your equipment. Wiping your old IT equipment can clear your data and remove unneeded applications, freeing up space and enabling your device to run faster.
Devices achieve maximum Lifecycle
Generally, 5 years is considered the lifespan of a laptop before they need to be swapped for a better model. But in some cases, perfectly fixable computers are scrapped.
This is a costly option and you could be wasting usable tech. Make sure your electronics receives the longest lifecycle possible to minimise the impact on our environment.
Refurbishing maximises the lifespan of IT and keeps relatively new devices out of landfill. This benefits our planet as less pollutive and hazardous materials are able to enter our waste streams.
