After years of service, the computers, monitors and peripherals used by your business become obsolete and dysfunctional. Your business also likely has old computers and equipment sitting around that are broken beyond repair. Trying to dispose of these old computers and computer equipment responsibly is difficult, even for the most environmentally friendly of businesses. A computer recycling company will pick up your old, obsolete computers, worn out monitors and broken printers and recycle their components for use inside new consumer products. Consider these benefits of what a computer recycling company can do for your business.
Depending on the condition of your old computers and equipment, a computer recycling company may be able to refurbish them into useful computers for community organizations or individuals who cannot afford to purchase a new computer system. Many of these community organizations are non-profits, which may issue you a receipt for tax purposes. Recycling your computer to a community organization could result in your business saving hundreds or even thousands of dollars off the yearly tax bill.
Dealing with the transportation of a large number of old computers, monitors and peripherals is an onerous task. A computer recycling company that comes to your location, has a large vehicle for transport, does the manual labor of lifting and loading and hauls everything away from your site is convenient for the operations of your business.
A computer recycling company will protect the security and confidentiality of your business data. Old computer hard drives are wiped clean so that no unscrupulous individual can steal your tax, credit card and bank account information. With certificates of destruction provided to you, you can rest assured knowing that your confidential business information will not be stolen.
Trying to recycle computers at your own location or strip salvageable metals is hazardous to your employees. Old computers may contain harmful chemicals including lead and mercury, while more recently produced computers and peripherals contain polyvinyl chloride, bromine, cadmium, chromium and flame retardant chemicals. A computer recycling company has the knowledge and expertise to handle these types of hazards safely. By using a computer recycling company, your business remains compliant with the law regarding the disposal of such materials.
Throwing a computer into your business dumpster is not the responsible thing to do. A computer recycling company is an environmentally friendly choice. Rather than allowing the hazardous chemicals inside your computer to leak into the landfill, recycling your computer allows these materials to be safely reused whenever possible. Your business may receive accolades from the municipal government for its environmental responsibility in recycling these materials.
