4 Benefits of Used Electronics Recycling

Most businesses use electronics daily, from networking hardware to PCs, telephone systems, and equipment. Unfortunately, when it’s time to upgrade to newer tools, many organizations aren’t sure what to do with the old equipment and don’t think of used electronics recycling as an option. Recycling those used electronics is not only good for the environment; it helps your community, too.

4 Reasons to Consider Recycling Your Used Hardware and Equipment

  1. Protect public health. Electronics may contain hazardous materials that could threaten public health if disposed of improperly. Because the components and materials in electronic equipment may contain lead, mercury, cadmium, and chromium, they must be recycled so those materials can be handled correctly.
  2. Conserve natural resources. Raw materials like metals that go into producing electronic equipment can often be recovered during recycling and reused to make new products. This helps lessen the environmental impact of manufacturing electronic equipment and devices.
  3. Help drive local employment. Recycling has become a big business in its own right over the last several decades as people have become more aware of the benefits of reducing waste and reusing materials. And, like any growing industry, signs point to an increased need for workers in the recycling industry. So, by doing your part to recycle your used electronics, you’re also helping maintain and create jobs for workers in the recycling industry.
  4. Support your local community. When materials are recycled, sometimes they can be refurbished and reused in the community. Schools, community centers, and organizations that help low-income families appreciate receiving recycled electronics that allow them to help those organizations and individuals succeed.
