In an age run almost entirely by technology, the amount of electronic waste generated annually will only increase, which means electronic disposition is more important than ever. Proper IT asset disposition prevents old IT assets from ending up in landfills, which helps protect the health of those living near the landfills, as well as the environment. There are many benefits to partnering with an ITAD enterprise, and we’ve gathered a list of four reasons why you should find an ITAD provider ASAP.
- Convenience – After upgrading equipment, old IT hardware can pile up and begin to be more of a burden than anything. ITAD companies take the problem off of your hands and dispose of retired electronics, saving you and your enterprise time and space. HOBI disposes of IT assets via recycling, and shredding devices that cannot be recycled.
- Data Security – One of the most important aspects of getting rid of old electronics is data security. Even after electronics are reset, large amounts of data is still stored on the device, and without proper disposition personal information is vulnerable to theft. Partnering with an ITAD enterprise provides client peace-of-mind that their personal data is in safe, professional hands when disposing of old hardware. HOBI specifically uses an internally developed tool, the HOBI Shield®, that completely wipes all data from a device before processing. Our three stages of data security ensures clients that no personal data is leaked.
- Repair & Refurbishment – Because technology is worth so much, getting rid of old IT assets may feel like a giant loss, especially if the hardware still has some life left in it. Some ITAD providers offer repair and refurbishment services for devices that have not yet run out of use, which means you don’t have to feel bad for upgrading. HOBI’s Dallas and Phoenix locations offer Mobile Lifecycle Management (MLM) for Mobility Managed Services (MMS) programs. HOBI focuses on maximizing the availability of mobile assets during their useful life, as well as their disposition.
- Environmental Support – When electronics are not properly disposed of they may end up in landfills, and after sitting for too long harmful chemicals can soak into the soil and contaminate groundwater, which eventually contaminates the drinking water supply of neighboring areas. This means that those living near landfills can develop serious health issues over time from long term exposure. Electronics may also be sent to incinerators, but this results in chemicals being burned and polluting the air. Proper IT asset disposition is one way to help protect the environment, and the health of residents near landfills.
