IT Equipment Recycling is a hot topic at the moment. Recent press articles and TV documentaries such as the BBC’s Blue Planet and Drowning in Plastic have highlighted the huge negative impact waste has on our environment.


Crucially, just a few small changes can make a big difference, such as recycling. It’s important to make our environment a cleaner place, conserving materials, saving energy and reducing the amount of rubbish sent to landfill.


Companies can play a key role in helping to reduce environmental damage by recycling their old IT equipment such as PCs, laptops, tablets, servers and monitors.


Help the environment

By recycling your old and unwanted IT hardware, you’re doing your bit to help the environment by preventing potentially hazardous waste from entering landfill and causing soil and water contamination.


Plus, many parts of your old IT kit can be repurposed to make new equipment. Often producing recycled materials requires less energy than the manufacture of new equipment. Recycling also conserves energy by reducing the need for transportation of raw materials, which also decreases greenhouse gas emissions and vehicle emissions during shipping.


Safe disposal

Another important consideration is the safe disposal of the old IT equipment. Discarded computer equipment needs to be disposed of in a safe and controlled manner because it can contain toxic substances and is effectively classed as hazardous waste.


In 2007, the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive was introduced. The legislation aims to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced and to encourage everyone to reuse, recycle and recover it. Basically, the WEEE recycling initiative means you are legally obliged to dispose or recycle your IT hardware equipment safely and securely. And this is where the team of experts at Asset Remarketing can help.
