E-Waste | The Problem Is Getting Bigger
E-Waste is a term for electronic products that have neared the end of their lifecycle and are ready to be discarded. This includes everything from computers and laptops to tablets, printers, phones, copiers, and more.
The e-Waste problem is only getting bigger. In fact, e-Waste is the world’s fastest growing solid waste stream and is predicted to double by 2050.
E-Waste is a problem for several reasons, not least of which is the danger to the environment, but it can also be dangerous to your brand. The last thing you need is to be known as a business that doesn’t care about the dangers to health and the environment presented by e-Waste.
Recovering Value from Your Old Electronics
What’s interesting about e-Waste is that many electronic devices can still find useful life in a different environment. They can be repurposed or refurbished rather than being sent to a landfill.
Protec works with your company to remarket IT assets as you retire older computer equipment. Our ITAD (Information Technology Asset Disposition) services can purchase and consign laptops and towers, Apple and PC products, networking equipment, and even standalone copiers. What we can do depends on the age and condition of the equipment.
Asset disposition may turn into a new revenue stream, where old-but-still-serviceable parts or units find new life.
Recycle E-Waste to Maintain Data Security
In today’s environment of identity theft, simply sending old electronics to the landfill is a recognized security risk.
When you recycle your e-Waste with an NAID AAA Certified Recycler like Protec, not only do you ensure that your e-Waste is properly recycled, but you also ensure that data remaining on computers, laptops, and even smartphones is disposed of properly, protecting your data and the personally identifiable information (PII) of your clients.
