Below is a recap of this week’s blog posts including mobility-managed vITAD services, increasing e-scrap payments in California, problem solving with vITAD services, and things to avoid when searching for an ITAD provider.
In an expanding ITAD landscape, value-added IT asset disposition, or vITAD, services are becoming the new industry norm. The industry is constantly changing, but in recent years clients’ needs have become more sophisticated, requiring ITAD providers to go above and beyond the traditional core service offerings.
E-scrap recyclers in California may see an increase in state payments due to a proposed rate increase motivated by several factors, including high inflation. Due to the passage of SB 1215, the amount paid to recyclers to cover the average net costs of collecting and recycling covered products will now occur annually instead of every other year. A number of recent challenges have led the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) to suggest an increase by July 1, 2023.
The last several years have seen many changes, especially in the business world, and the ITAD industry has adapted to these changes by expanding the traditional service offerings to include services such as ESG reporting, customized 3PL solutions, portal customization for asset tracking, ERP integration, donations programs, and asset redeployment. These additional service offerings are part of a change in industry standard services for IT asset disposition. HOBI calls this new era vITAD – value-added IT asset disposition.
Ensuring your sensitive information is protected and your assets are disposed of safely and securely is extremely important. To achieve that you need a reliable IT asset disposition vendor. When you partner with the right ITAD vendor, you are taking the correct measures to avoid data breaches and possible damages to your brand, customer base, revenue, and opening up the opportunity to enter a global market. Rather than recycling your assets and used data center equipment, you can recover them and take advantage of the trade-in value.
