Did you know there are 12 colocation data centers in Alabama and over 60 high-end IT consultants and service providers? With this many service providers comes a problem — ewaste.
Ewaste is electronic equipment that has failed, reached the end of its lifespan, or is being decommissioned for some other reason. This includes everything from data center blade servers to small business networks, monitors, computers and laptops, tablets and smartphones, peripherals, printers— and everything in between.
Often, the equipment is still operational, but has been replaced so your data center can stay competitive, or your IT service can offer customers the level of service they expect. Upgrades happen as software is updated and new technical needs force change.
One of the major problems everyone in the IT industry runs into, sooner or later, is that all that outmoded equipment piles up over time. It ends up dominating your storage shelves and back rooms. Often, the hard drives and flash memory in those abandoned devices store personal and corporate information.
What happens to all that old equipment? In a landfill, it becomes hazardous waste. In the wrong hands, it becomes a security risk.
Often, old electronics can be put back into use when made available to the right market, under the right circumstances. At Protec Recycling, that’s one of our fields of expertise.
