Upgrades in electronics continue to grow and let’s face it, you want the newer laptop or phone! But what do you end up doing with your old electronics? Some of your stuff might be so out-dated that they aren’t compatible anymore with anything we use today. So when it is time to upgrade, remember to recycle your electronics. There are tons of reasons to recycle your electronics
Data can be destroyed securely
Data Destruction can not only remove data from all types of old media, but we will break down and separate all e-waste components so they can be properly recycled. It is now a one stop option for protecting personal information as well as handling your e-recycling needs.
Recycling means less production waste
According to the book ‘Sustainability in Supply Chain Management’ it says “Recycling one million laptops saves the energy equivalent to the electricity used by 3,657 U.S. homes in a year. One metric ton of circuit boards can contain 40 to 800 times the amount of gold and 30 to 40 times the amount of copper mined from one metric ton of ore in the U.S.”
Conserve natural resources
If you decide to recycle your electronics, some materials can be recovered from the devices and used to make new products. This means fewer new resources will need to be used to meet the growing demand for electronic devices.
