Below is a recap of this week’s blog posts including how to reduce reuse and recycle with an ITAD provider, Oregon’s new electronics law, tips on how to protect your electronics as the weather heats up, and details regarding the ISRI 2023 convention where HOBI’s president and co-founder Craig Boswell will speak next week in Nashville.
Many companies are becoming more environmentally aware and doing more to reduce their carbon footprint. IT asset disposition service providers like HOBI partner with companies looking to get rid of retired IT hardware and ensure it is disposed of properly. ITAD providers can help businesses practice sustainable strategies and achieve environmental ESG goals with three steps.
Oregon’s House of Representatives recently passed a bill that would significantly change the state’s electronics collection and processing law. On March 22, House Bill 3220 passed with 56 votes in favor and four excused and not voting.
It’s that time of year again, temperatures are rising, and electronics are at risk of heat damage. It’s easy to assume that electronics are more durable when you can’t see the damage, but just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. When we think of damaged electronics, we typically think of shattered screens or water damage, perhaps a few scratches, but internal damage can sometimes be more dangerous than external damage, and it’s important to keep your gadgets protected this summer as temperatures begin to rise.
The ISIRI Annual Convention and Exposition takes place in Nashville, Tenn., April 17-20 at the Music City Center. The four-day event brings the recycling industry together for networking and educational opportunities. More than 70 speakers are scheduled to share their knowledge and expertise. Among them is Craig Boswell, president and co-founder of HOBI International Inc, as well as past chairman of ISRI’s Electronics Division.
