How To Start An E-Waste Recycling Program At Work
Save The Environment And Your Workplace
E-waste is a growing issue that needs urgent attention, and e-waste recycling is a solution we all need to practice in return. Recycling starts at home, the office, and anywhere that e-waste exists. And where there is e-waste, there is always potential for e-waste recycling. After all, what makes for better team building than helping out the environment a little?
What Can You Recycle?
The first step is to learn which kinds of electronics are recyclable. In general, you can recycle all obsolete IT equipment such as outdated computers, tablets, fax machines, wired landlines, flash drives, projectors, circuit boards, audio-video equipment, etc. If you know of an old device in your office that you do not use, keep it aside and call your local electronics waste recycler (ideally us at Arrow) for help. Keep in mind that it is extremely important to destroy or wipe any data found in each device after deciding to recycle or dispose of any of your equipment. Guarding your data is an essential part of any electronics recycling program. Do not throw old appliances in the trash. Professional electronics recyclers, like Arrow, will completely erase any data on your device and send you a certificate showing they have securely destroyed your private data, assuring you that your sensitive information is safe and secure.
Why You Should Use Arrow
When you decide to recycle your e-waste, you’re not only helping declutter your workspace, you’re also helping clean up the environment. When electronics are reused or recycled, it is beneficial for the environment as recyclers safely remove toxic materials. On the other hand, if electronics are tossed into landfills, they may break and leach poisonous chemicals, which can pollute the nearby environment. Recycling your e-waste can also be financially beneficial! For example, sometimes electronic components from items such as tablets and mobile phones contain rare earth minerals. These unique elements are valuable and can be recycled and reused. E-waste recycling companies, like Arrow, will also pay you for specific e-waste!
