Each year, a new wave of electronics is released, and offices and schools worldwide retire IT assets in favor of upgraded models. This results in much IT equipment being left in storage closets, thrown away or left on curbs rather than proper disposal. IT asset disposition facilities like HOBI ensure IT assets are properly disposed of, and some offer donation programs to help extend the lifecycle of devices.
Responsible disposition of electronics is more important than ever as technology continues to evolve. Electronic waste can be detrimental to the environment if disposed of improperly due to the toxic chemicals in the metals that soak into the soil over time. This can eventually lead to water pollution and harm surrounding residents.
ITAD providers collect retired or unwanted IT assets such as laptops, tablets, phones, or desktops and ensure they are disposed of properly via electronics recycling. Recycling electronics prevents them from entering the waste stream and being sent to landfills. Some ITAD enterprises also provide alternative options like repair and reuse or donation programs that expand the lifecycle of devices.
Electronics donation programs are becoming more popular for companies seeking to get rid of retired IT assets. Not every retired device has reached the end of its useful life, and many companies are partnering with IT asset disposition facilities like HOBI to provide used electronics to those in need while also maximizing the value of their retired IT assets.
